WHAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN?
The Comprehensive Plan is a policy document that will guide decision making in the Town for the next 15 to 20 years. The plan will evaluate existing conditions and set a vision for the community in the areas of growth and development, agriculture, tourism, economic development, infrastructure, local governance and more. The plan will be developed by a 7 to 10 person steering committee, who will serve as the voice of the community on all aspects of the plan. The total process takes approximately 12 months, after which the Town will have a roadmap for future of our community.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE COMMITTEE
Committee members will be asked to review data and information generated by planners, and provide local insights to ensure that the plan is reflective of community values and your wishes for the future of Fayette. With the help of a team of planning professionals, and local elected leaders and staff, committee members will develop recommendations for plan elements, and ultimately approve the draft that the Town considers for adoption.
Steering committee members are asked to commit to one meeting per month, which will be scheduled according to the availability of committee members. Meetings are typically held in the evening for 60-90 minutes. Members are also asked to support the plan’s public involvement efforts, attending public events to hear from the community on plan elements.
