Information provided by Douglas County
Douglas County’s Comprehensive Master Plan (CMP) is an evolving document that establishes a common vision for what the County will look like over the next 20 to 30 years. The CMP provides guidance for a variety of issues that directly affect the quality of life of Douglas County residents, including creating a sense of community in existing and new development, provision of services, growth management, open space protection, transportation and water, for example. The community vision contained in the CMP guides decision makers and helps to prioritize community values.
The CMP is a living document that, under the stewardship of the Planning Commission, evolves over time to reflect the vision and goals of the Douglas County community. For that reason, a process exists for amending the CMP. Amendment proposals are presented to the community for feedback through informal public meetings and a formal 35-day referral review process before being considered by the Planning Commission at a public hearing.
