This department plans for community growth by managing the County's Comprehensive Plan.  Every County Code, capital project and zoning change begins with a proposed amendment to the Comprehensive Plan.  Amendments may be prompted by citizen request, population growth or changing state law. The process includes public meetings and guidance by a citizen advisory group called the Planning Commission. Learn about the Comprehensive Plan, or find an upcoming meeting in the calendar below.
