Focusing on Water Policies in the Comprehensive Master Plan

Last year, Jefferson County Planning & Zoning heard from the community that the water policies in the Comprehensive Master Plan (pdf) should be the next focus of updates. Earlier this summer, staff began researching ways to better link water and land use planning in our policies and we are getting ready to share some of our initial findings. Three public meetings were held in early December to get comments from interested citizens on some potential new policies and water use numbers to add to the Plan. 

Comment Period

There is still time to review the information distributed at the meetings and provide feedback. Comments should be sent to Jefferson County Planning & Zoning by January 17, 2020. If you would like to comment on the proposed policies, please download the Proposed Policy documents and fill in the columns noting whether the policy is important or should be stricken and then write notes regarding negative or unintended consequences of the policies. The last column is a place for modifications or other comments on the policy. Then please email them to Jefferson County Planning and Zoning. You may also review the other Meeting Documents and December Meeting Notes below.
