Long Range Planning focuses on "big picture" projects and policy level discussions within the County and on a regional basis, with the intent of sustaining a vibrant community for the long-term. Community engagement and collaborative work with neighborhood caucuses, local, state and federal agencies and non-governmental organizations, build the framework for balancing natural resource conservation with a well-planned and livable built environment into the future. Current projects are listed below, followed by links to other plans and data, including adopted land use master plans, demographic data and regional planning efforts.
