WAYNE COUNTY – Things change. It can be exasperating and inspiring, threatening and promising, but things change. Wouldn’t you like to have a say in how things change?
This summer, the Wayne County Commissioners and the Planning/GIS Department launches its Comprehensive Plan Update and it all starts with the surveys – one for residents and a second for our part-time neighbors and visitors.
Access to the surveys is available online using the links or QR codes. You can download a printer friendly version at our website or request a paper copy at your local library, senior center or from your township or borough. You can also call 570-253-5970, ext. 4060 to request a copy by mail.
The Wayne County Comprehensive Plan, a multi-year process, looks at where things stand at every level. The document, prepared by a pair of local consulting firms, involves studies of everything from population & demographics to economic development and transportation.
The Comprehensive Plan will also include the nearly completed Natural Resources & Outdoor Recreation Plan and the newly commissions Housing Assessment and Strategy. Community Facilities, Cultural and Historic assets also receive equal treatment.
The Wayne County Comprehensive Plan Update represents the community strategy for managing change. In 2010 when the County Commissioners adopted the last Comprehensive Plan Update, they wanted all the work and recommendations it contained to have a real impact on the future. The result has been Wayne Tomorrow! and a way of doing business that promotes collaboration and cooperation.
Wayne Tomorrow! stands poised to carry out the vision established by the Comprehensive Plan, making this update an unprecedented opportunity to play a role in shaping Wayne County’s future. The new plan will be used to help guide us into a future with the same or better quality of life we have all come to enjoy.
