Perry County Comprehensive Plan 2015 Update


WHAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN?

Logo for 2015 Update of Perry County Comprehensive Plan

The comprehensive plan is a general policy guide for the physical development of the County. It is a document designed to state basic policies for the purpose of guiding future growth and development in Perry County. The comprehensive plan provides a blueprint for housing, transportation, community facilities and utilities, and for land use, as well as an examination tool for social and economic characteristics of the County. In general, the comprehensive plan is in part, a factual report that examines how the past has led to the present, as well as a report that can be used to chart the County's path into the future.




THE PURPOSE OF THE PLAN:

Perry County's landscape comprises a variety of land use patterns. It is a combination of homes, agriculture, forest, businesses, industries, schools, parks, churches and government services. All of these segments are tied together by a network of streets and communication channels. To arrange all these uses in an orderly manner as the County develops is the function of the Comprehensive Plan. This Comprehensive Plan is a guide to orderly development in promoting health, safety, welfare and convenience of the people within Perry County. It organizes and coordinates the relationship between land use patterns, and charts a course for growth and change. The plan expresses the aims and ambitions of the County delineating the form and character it has sought to achieve. It reflects the policies by which the identified goals contained within may be reached and are subject to continual review. Where it is permissible and support warrants, the implementation of this plan can be accomplished by way of ordinance adoption.
