RC: Comprehensive Growth Plan

Here is an article discussing the issues facing local governments (think: Robertson County) related to planning & zoning. The Tennessee General Assembly is currently considering various bills that could have an adverse impact on local control of planning and zoning.

I wanted to highlight this portion of the article that discusses the Comprehensive Growth Plan -
The commission has also approved the development of a comprehensive growth plan for Robertson County, a process that is in its very early stages at this time. The impetus for creating this plan came from a series of workshops held in 2007 with Robertson County citizens who shared their concerns and opinions about the future growth and development of our community. The majority of people that attended these workshops expressed the same general feeling about what they want for our county—to maintain the agricultural landscape and encourage future growth around existing town centers and infrastructure.
We will be meeting with municipality leaders on this very Tuesday.
