Board of Commissioners considering public hearing on completed comprehensive plan
Addition of “character areas” a concern to board members
FB DCN Government County
The Dawson County Board of Commissioners plans to hold a public hearing on the county’s 2018 comprehensive plan draft, which was recently approved by the state Department of Community Affairs and is ready for the board to adopt. The plan is a roadmap for elected officials to use when planning for the future, and the county began the update process early this year with surveys and public meetings soliciting citizen input on the way they want future growth and development to be handled. Four public input and update meetings were held throughout the spring and summer and a 28-question online survey collected input from over 500 people.
