Chatham Residents Still Have Chance to Provide Input on Comprehensive Plan

— Written By


PITTSBORO, NC— Chatham County wants to hear from residents and get input on draft recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan. All draft plan materials and a public survey, open until March 24, 2017, are posted online

“We ask that people share this link with other residents so that we hear from as many people as possible,” said Planning Director Jason Sullivan.

For those who have not yet heard about the development of the Chatham County Comprehensive Plan, the plan will include recommendations that help guide future policies and funding decisions over the next 25 to 30 years. It will address a number of topics, including transportation, agriculture, natural resources, infrastructure, housing, economic development, health, parks and recreation, and land use.

This plan has been in development since the winter of 2016, and has included multiple community meetings, outreach events and surveys. For the most recent meetings, a draft land use map and recommendations have been prepared for review and feedback. Online survey responses and comments on draft recommendations will be gathered over the next month. A draft plan will be made available for review later this spring.
