Urban Growth Area Update

The Board of County Commissioners adopted a new Urban Growth Area Boundary (UGA) on July 18th 2013. The UGA establishes a boundary around developing areas with everything outside the boundary intended for rural land use and everything inside the boundary intended for urban land use. The Commissioner's decision expands the UGA in some areas while reducing it in other areas. The decision included consideration of environmental studies collaboration with other jurisdictions and several years of public input.
