Envisioning the Isle Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plans, including Envisioning the Isle, are not a zoning ordinance, but rather a high-level tool for the County to guide future policy and development decisions. Envisioning the Isle should ultimately be used as a guide for daily and long-term decision making. The County should refer to the recommendations outlined in the Plan for daily decisions such as considering zoning and development requests, purchasing land, or constructing new infrastructure or public facilities. For developers or investors, Envisioning the Isle should provide broad concepts and policies that encourage and promote growth in accordance with the community’s vision.
