Community Development staff urge residents to read through the current Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted in December of 2014. This document, also found on the County website, indicates various trends affecting the physical development of the land as well as service models within the locality. It also serves as a tool for anticipating and dealing with change in both the private and public sectors over the next 15 years. Citizens are asked to submit views based on the changes they wish to see local officials consider or planning elements they would like to see continued.
“This is an opportunity for local constituents to express their opinions regarding how Campbell County will approach growth, development and other community issues over the upcoming decades,” said Paul Harvey, Director of Community Development. “We value citizens’ input as this is a collaborative effort toward setting our County’s overarching goals and future plans.”
Public hearings will be scheduled in the fall for County residents to comment on revised planning elements, prior to the Board of Supervisors voting on a final plan.
If you have questions regarding Campbell County’s comprehensive planning process or schedule, please contact Austin Mitchell, Zoning and Subdivision Administrator, at (434) 332-9780, 283-9780 or 592-9780.
