The County, with input from residents and stakeholders, is working to update two of its long-range planning documents that outline strategies for growth and preservation of our county’s assets and resources. These meetings will offer the public an opportunity to provide input that will be used to inform the future of Jefferson County. The plans will cover the topics of land use; agricultural, natural, and cultural resources; transportation; housing; economic development; community facilities; and intergovernmental cooperation. 

The public meeting will include a presentation of the overall planning process and the intent of the Comprehensive Plan and Agricultural Preservation & Land Use Plan. Activities will follow the presentation to gain input on the issues and opportunities for Jefferson County. County Staff and the Consultant Team will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the plan. Input received from the public meeting will help guide the updates to these two important plans.
