Plan Amendment Work Program

The Plan Amendment (PA) Work Program lays out the review schedule for current Comprehensive Plan amendments and special studies. The work program consists of activity center and neighborhood planning studies, and site-specific (Board-authorized) and countywide policy amendments. Priority is given to amendments that advance major policy objectives, address emerging community concerns, and provide a platform to better implement the Concept for Future Development [add link]. The planning process strives to identify the latest planning trends, engage the community in planning efforts, and ensure that plan guidance is up to date and relevant to decision makers.
