The Comprehensive plan establishes a clear vision of the kind of place a community wants to be in the future and provides a course of action to build what stakeholders envision. A Comprehensive Plan shapes decisions such as:
– Location of commercial, office and residential land uses
– Necessity of infrastructure expansion
– Areas of environmental or historical significance that should be protected
– Identify needs and appropriate land use controls such as zoning and development standards
The Comprehensive Plan includes unincorporated Bulloch County, Brooklet, Portal and Register and will be completed and updated by June 30, 2019. A Steering Committee, including representation from throughout the County, will assist in the creation of the Comprehensive Plan.
The Comprehensive Plan consists of three major documents: Community Assessment (including a technical addendum), Community Participation Program, and Community Agenda. The Community Assessment examines the current status of the County including: population, economic development, housing, natural and cultural resources, community facilities and services, intergovernmental coordination, transportation, and an analysis of existing development patterns. The Community Participation Program outlines how the public will be included in the process of updating the Plan. The Community Agenda relies heavily on community input to determine what the County should look like in the next 20 years and what policies are needed to achieve these goals and objectives.
