About the Comprehensive Plan - Sumner County's Blueprint to the Future

The 2035 Comprehensive Plan: Sumner County's Blueprint to the Future will be the county's collective effort to address anticipated and projected growth over the next 25 years.  The Comprehensive Plan will outline a long term vision for unincorporated Sumner County and detail objectives involving land use and transportation policies supportive of the vision.  Coordinating development
activities between the county's departments, municipalities, and regional entities and providing a context for local decision making will be enhanced with the plan.  Additionally, groups or individuals concerned with growth and development in the county will be informed of Sumner County's plan for the future. 

Stay Informed!
