The Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday made a few changes to the county’s new Comprehensive Plan before sending it to the Board of Supervisors for final adoption.
The plan, a 99-page document, is a guide that addresses the way land will be used in the county. It’s mandated by the state legislature and is updated regularly.
Called the “General Plan” in previous versions, it is divided into eight sections: transportation, land use, growth areas, water, energy, open space, environment, and cost of development.
The last plan was developed by professional consultants at a cost of about $250,000; this time around, it was done in-house by the Development Services department with public input, including a volunteer citizens’ advisory committee.
