Comprehensive Plan & Land Use Code Update

We are back to full momentum on our Comprehensive Plan Update and are also planning a complementary land use and subdivision code update as a result.

Preparing the Comp Plan Amendments

Over the course of 2021 and the beginning of 2022, the Planning Commission helped to develop the objectives, which were supported by Council, that will direct the policy updates and future land use mapping changes that will be provided for review and discussion at future meetings (potential dates are noted below under ‘Potential Discussion & Hearing Dates’).

Land Development Code Update

The Land Development Code (LDC) is one of the main implementation tools of the Comprehensive Plan. In their 2023 annual budget, the Town Council appropriated funds for this code update at an opportune time so it can be informed by the Comprehensive Plan Update that will precede it. The project will be advertised in a Request for Proposals with more information to be provided on our Business webpage (for all advertisements for bids, proposals, etc.)
