The General Land Use Plan (GLUP) is the primary policy guide for development. Landowners may request a GLUP amendment to accommodate development of their property. However, a Special GLUP Study is needed in those instances where there is no adopted plan or where the GLUP amendment request is inconsistent with the guidance of the relevant adopted plan.
