Cultivating Community Plan Adopted
On December 31, 2009 the Union County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to adopt Cultivating Community: A Plan for Union County's Future as the new county comprehensive plan. This action came after two years of extensive and meaningful community involvement and tireless hours of volunteer and staff contributions. The Cultivating Community plan will shape the county's future for years to come and guide decision-makers in managing future growth, promoting sustainable economic development, and preserving the rural landscape and way of life. The county now looks forward to continuing the partnerships that have been forged in this planning process to successfully implement the plan moving forward. The Union County Board of Commissioners and the Union County Planning Commission would like to thank all county citizens that provided input and participated in the process of developing this plan.
It is anticipated that the three multi-municipal plans that were simultaneously being developed with the county's local governments will be finalized in early 2010 and will then proceed through the adoption process.
