Employees of the County Planning Office are professional staff who evaluate land use proposals for the BOC.
The County Planning Commission is a citizens’ advisory board appointed by the BOCS. Its eight members offer non-binding recommendations to the BOCS on land use issues.
The Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for future county land use policy. The county website notes that the comprehensive plan includes “recommendations for future land use, transportation systems, schools, parks, libraries, historic and environmental resources … facilities, and services.” The most recent version, the 2008 Comprehensive Plan, was officially adopted by the county supervisors on 18 March 2008 — with multiple updates in subsequent years.
