Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee

The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee aides in developing a plan to focus on the next 20-year period for the County. They provide perspective on information gathered as well as feedback on draft policies and implementation actions. They also act as a sounding board for residents, and advocate for The Plan.

The Committee meets the second Tuesday of every month. These meetings are open to the public to watch. Meetings may be held virtually on ZOOM or in person. Check the events calendar for more information about specific meetings.
