Comprehensive Plan Update

Granville County is Updating the Comprehensive Plan


The Project

Granville County is updating its Comprehensive Plan. The project presents an opportunity for residents, businesses and other stakeholders to have a say in the County’s future growth, development, and quality of life. An effective Comprehensive Plan and Future Land Use Map will help shape the vision and reflect the unique identity of the community. The Plan will analyze current conditions, establish goals, and create strategies relevant to land use, transportation, utilities, natural resources, recreation, economic development, and more.

The Survey

Take Survey #2 at this link:

The survey will help provide further direction for the Granville County Comprehensive Plan.

The Schedule
