The Kent County Division of Planning is seeking public review and comment on the recently released first draft of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan updates.

The plan is a framework of goals and policies that will guide decision making to ensure that development and investment occur in an efficient and logical manner while minimizing short and long-term costs to citizens. Elements that impact residents and businesses throughout the county include land use, economic development, recreation, housing, conservation and community design. County residents are encouraged to provide input on the policies and recommendations being considered. Public hearings will occur later in 2018.

Input from county residents help determine the county’s top priorities. Access the plan via Facebook at; via Twitter at KentCountyPlanning@KCplanning; or at
