THE COMMISSIONERS’ PLANNING PROCESS
The County Commissioners held nine Town Meetings throughout the county to present countywide zoning to the public. The Commissioners listened to comments and suggestions from citizens, and gathered input through hundreds of comment cards filled out by the public.
Based upon the public comment received at these meetings, as well as further research, the Commissioners have created a draft of their growth management plan. They continue to hold public meetings to receive public feedback regarding the plan. The Commissioners aim to have the growth management plan adopted by late summer or early fall of 2008.
