Alachua County Comprehensive Plan Update - The Planning Commission, serving as the Local Planning Agency (LPA), will review draft updates to the Alachua County Comprehensive Plan related to public facilities, greenways master plan, community health, energy, local foods, equity, economic opportunity, and intergovernmental coordination issues identified in the Evaluation and Appraisal of the Comprehensive Plan. These draft updates relate to various elements of the Plan including the Economic, Community Health, Future Land Use, Public School Facilities, Conservation and Open Space, Recreation, Solid Waste, Capital Improvements, Energy, and Intergovernmental Coordination Elements.

This meeting is part of an ongoing series of meetings with the LPA and the Board of County Commissioners as part of the evaluation and update of the County’s Comprehensive Plan that is completed approximately every seven years.
