The Comprehensive Plan will serve as a policy and operations tool that guides the county toward the vision of being the most innovative and inclusive county in America for all families and businesses. The plan will be a broad and implementable document that addresses future development and code needs, including technical zoning or development standards requirements, as well as overarching policies/statements about engaging the community, addressing economic development, equity, and sustainability in all its forms.

The Adams County Comprehensive Plan will consider past plans, like sub-area plans, and it will serve as the guidepost for concurrent and coordinated planning efforts with the Transportation Master Plan and the Parks, Open Space, and Trails Plan.
