Comprehensive Plan

The Comprehensive Plan guides coordinated development in the County, serving as a decision-making tool for the County Board, the Planning Commission and County Departments. The Plan must be reviewed every five years as required by State law. Arlington’s Comprehensive Plan was established on August 27, 1960, and originally included five elements. Today, it includes 10 elements that cover land use, economic development, community character, natural resources, parks and recreation, transportation, housing and historic preservation.
