Public Forum 3: Preferred Land Use Scenarios

View the report for a full summary of the results of Forum 3 or the appendix for greater detail into the responses.

The goal of the third public engagement process was to gain feedback on two preferred growth scenarios in order to develop one final recommended future land use plan to include in the draft comprehensive plan. The scenarios presented in this round were created from the preferences expressed in the first two rounds of public input.

Capital Impact Scenario Comparison — These tables project the potential fiscal impact of providing public service to new growth over the next 20 years (2020-2040). These estimates utilize the County’s projected population growth over the next 20 years and represent a “worst case scenario” for fiscal impacts. They do not take into account the expansion or recycling of existing facilities and resources.

Fiscal Impact Analysis Report — The analysis factors in all variable revenues generated by future growth/development. All operating and capital costs attributable to future development are included in the analysis. Comparing available resources to projected costs reveals sufficient revenues to cover the projected expenditures for each of the scenarios.

Market Assessment of Growth Scenarios — The report includes descriptions of the scenarios analyzed; land use capacities; demographics; labor force, employment, and real estate trends; and market feasibility assessment and considerations.
