What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan is a written document formally adopted by the local legislature that contains a vision, goals, objectives, and strategies for the future development and conservation of the community. The Comprehensive Plan is not a law nor does it establish regulations. It is a guiding document that must be considered when developing any land use laws, such as zoning, that will be used to implement the plan. Those land use laws must be developed and adopted through a separate process.
