Comprehensive Plan

A comprehensive land use plan is a plan for the future use and development of the land. It focuses upon the land and its natural features such as streams, rivers, floodplains, and soil types. It begins with where we are today, and is based upon a vision for the future. Twenty years from now, Madison County will be comprised of vibrant communities, productive farms, valuable natural and cultural resources, and a well maintained land use pattern that will be a good place to raise children.
