Whether you want to view the current plan, learn about what a Comprehensive Plan is, view upcoming opportunities to provide your input, take our current survey, or get in touch with us about the plan and process you can do it here. Our goal is to provide you the information you need to make informed decisions as you provide your input during the development of the plan.
