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.
Residents are invited to participate in the planning process through both in-person and virtual formats. Each engagement format will cover the same material. A virtual Open House will be held on July 22nd, providing a presentation and question and answer opportunity. This presentation will be recorded and will be available via the project website for viewing. Participants will be provided materials and a survey link to provide feedback. The survey will be available starting on July 22nd. The presentation will be run throughout the two-hour open house, along with a range of activities. Participants are welcome to attend at any point within the meeting. Two in-person open houses will follow the virtual meeting on Tuesday, July 28th and Wednesday, July 29th.
