It's something that has been needed in DeWitt County for almost a quarter-century, and it is finally getting addressed.
The comprehensive plan for the County is long over due and while there's been a few attempts at an update, DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg says it time to the County direction.
Newberg explains a comprehensive plan can be a very important resource for an entity. He says it gives potential businesses an idea of what a community has planned and a lot changes in 25 years.
For Newberg, things like schools, businesses, and services need to be addressed in the comprehensive plan. He indicates the Land Use committee will oversee the assembly of the plan.
There will be public input opportunities as a part of the planning sessions. Newberg indicates those will be announced as the process moves along but emphasizes the Board is very serious about getting this put together.
