The comprehensive plan determines the future development of Douglas County by steering the creation of zoning districts and ordinance, forming policy related to transportation, parks and trails, natural resource use and encouraging economic development as well as the preservation of agriculture.
Draft sections of the plan, including land use goals and policies, parks and trails, transportation and a natural resource inventory, are available for review.
Public input and comments on the draft work completed are critical to ensuring that the process continues to move in a direction supported by county residents, according to Dave Rush, director of land and resource management.
Representatives from the county and SEH, Inc. will be present to answer questions during the open house.
