The County Master Plan is broad and will examine County land use, infrastructure, water capacity, transportation networks, government services, and other important topics.  The aim of the Master Plan is to better serve and accommodate the needs of residents, businesses, and visitors to the County.  The Master Plan will integrate and expand on concepts from the current Countywide Policy Plan and several recent plans and studies.  Examples include the Major Transportation Corridors Plan (2016) and the Parks Master Plan (2013), as well as other ongoing County initiatives, like the Water Master Plan (2018) and broadband strategic plan efforts.
