Clay Boards Meet Jointly on Comprehensive Plan Update

Members of the Clay County Board of County Commissioners and Clay County Planning Commission sit in a joint workshop Tuesday where they heard an update on the county's 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The county’s comprehensive plan is reevaluated every seven years to make any necessary changes as required by state law. The evaluation also gives staff a chance to see what worked and what didn’t work, to allow extended deadlines for some projects, and to discuss things that might need fixing. The updated plan is only a draft at this point, but will soon move into its final stages as the October 1 deadline for submittal to the state looms.
