Jackson County Public Works
Planning gives residents, business owners and community leaders a means to create a shared image of the community they hope to enjoy in the future. The Jackson County Charter called for the development of a county plan and in 1994, the Jackson County Legislature fulfilled that duty by adopting Strategy for the Future. The plan is first and foremost, a guide. The goals and policies of the plan provide a framework for elected and appointed officials to make decisions affecting land use, economic development, public infrastructure, public services and natural resources. Private decision-makers can use the plan to identify County policies and priorities to help them make development and investment decisions more predictable. It is a dynamic document that could and should be subject to periodic change when conditions within the County change significantly.
