Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendments, involve a public process to review and amend the Comprehensive Plan and zoning map designations that are attached to specific properties. The review involves evaluating increases in population, services, capital facilities, land use, public hearings and other factors. By state law, the County is limited to processing applications for such requests once a year.
The amendment process begins with a request for implementation of a Comprehensive Plan Amendment. Requests for an initiation are accepted between January 2nd and March 31st. Following the submittal deadline, requests are presented to the Board of County Commissioners who then determine which proposals will be initiated for further review.
