Region Plans offer community members an opportunity to develop a shared vision for their future. With the adoption of Plan2040, the County’s most current General Development Plan, the County Council has directed the Office of Planning and Zoning to work with communities to prepare plans for each of the County's nine regions (see link below). The Region Plans will build on the work of the previous Small Area Plans as well as Plan2040.
The Region Plans will include an evaluation of community assets and needs, a shared vision for the next 20 years, and specific recommendations about land use, zoning, environmental protection, transportation improvements, public facilities, and community design.

Order of Region Plans
Plans for three Regions will be developed at a time. The kickoff for Regions 2, 4, and 7 will occur on December 11, 2021. Below is the order and targeted start dates for the remaining Regions, as adopted by the County Council.
Stakeholder Advisory Committees
Stakeholder Advisory Committees were established for Regions 2, 4 and 7 to work collaboratively with County staff to prepare the Region Plans. These Committees were appointed by the County Executive and approved through three separate resolutions on November 1, 2021 by the County Council. The Committees include 9 to 15 members who represent the diverse interests of each Region. Check back in late 2022 for updates about the Stakeholder Advisory Committee application process for Regions 1, 3, and 9.
