Do you have ideas or comments on development in Jefferson County? Planning & Zoning is exploring potential updates to the Comprehensive Master Plan. Please see the Plan Updates page to find out more see the results of our recent survey.
The Comprehensive Master Plan (pdf) is a guide that is used when making land use decisions, such as rezoning, special use and site approval cases. The plan was adopted by the Planning Commission with community input. The recommendations in the plan are not mandatory; however, they do carry weight regarding the quality, type, amount and location of future development.
The Area Plans section contains additional advisory policies and land use recommendations that are also to be used when reviewing a proposed rezoning, special use, or site approval. The policies in these plans were created to be specific to the Area to which they apply and reflect input from community members, property owners and area agencies.
