August Director’s Note: Caroline County’s Comprehensive Plan

Caroline County is currently working with the community to shape the Comprehensive Plan through an online survey.

What is the Comprehensive Plan? It is a policy document that sets the vision for Caroline County through 2040. The Comprehensive Plan will outline the existing conditions of Caroline County, describe future goals and objectives for development and include an action plan on how to achieve these goals and objectives.

The Caroline County Planning & Codes department has a community survey out that gives residents a fast and easy way to give input. Please check out the ad for a QR code that will take you directly to the survey.

The Caroline County Comprehensive Plan will address the following topics: Future Growth and Land Use; Housing; Economic Development; Transportation and Mobility; Infrastructure and Utilities; Parks, Natural Resources, and the Environment. All of the things that are important to business leaders, workers, and residents. 

The plan will be informed with data from the Census Bureau (these are the answers you gave back in 2020 when you took the Census). More importantly, the plan will be informed through community input.

That bears repeating – community input influences the Comprehensive Plan. Just as a business will engage in planning (6 months, 1 year, 5 years, etc.), so does the County want to memorialize how the people of the Caroline see growth and sustainability, economic and community development over the course of the next 10 to 17 years.

Please take the survey, and look for information on future community engagement opportunities.
