Public Engagement

Landowner Requests to Change Future Land Use Designation

The Comprehensive Plan helps guide decisions regarding land use, establishing a vision of how different parts of the County may grow and evolve. The General Land Use Plan is a map that designates areas where new development may be appropriate over the next twenty years. The land use designations are not intended to be site-specific but are to be used as a guide for zoning deliberations.

Landowner Requests to Change Future Land Use Designations

As part of the citizen engagement process, landowners were given the opportunity to submit requests to change the future land use designations applied to their properties (as shown on the General Land Use Plan). These requests are high-level, preliminary ideas about how landowners imagine their property being used during the planning horizon. To date, 21 applications have been submitted. The information can be reviewed on the attached spreadsheet and map that generally shows the locations of these requests.


The County is beginning the process of reviewing the General Land Use Plan, and these requests will be analyzed during that process. There will be additional public meetings to obtain feedback on all land use changes.
