Bureau of Comprehensive Planning - Community Comprehensive Plans

Community Comprehensive Plans

Community comprehensive plans cover the areas for which the County and the municipalities jointly develop plans and coordinate on other planning and development activities. These areas are also those areas in which a more detailed plan has been developed than the County Master Plan addresses. These plans identify a Growth Area Boundary (GAB) for each community. The area within this boundary is the Designated Growth Area (DGA). These areas are indicated in gray on the adopted countywide land use designation map. Below is a map showing the current DGAs and the municipal limits.
