Help point Clay County's Compass in the right direction as we create the new Clay County Comprehensive Plan to guide our future!

Watch this brief video to learn more! 


What is a comprehensive plan and why should it matter to me?

At its core, a comprehensive plan is a vision for the future at a community scale. Comprehensive plans are created by and for the community to record shared goals and desires for themselves and their fellow community members.


A comprehensive plan examines what a community is, where it came from, and crafts a coordinated road map for the future. This road map guides the growth and development of the community for the next 10 to 20 years, and is revisited to ensure its relevance.
