The Land Use Chapter of the Plan is comprised of two major components: 1) the General Development Policies and 2) the Land Use Groups. The General Development Policies establish guidelines and recommendations for the evaluation of development in the County. These policies should apply to all land uses on a countywide basis regardless of development type. Land Use Groups include the individual land use categories and their respective recommended densities. The areas assigned to each land use category can be seen on the 2026 Future Land Use Map.
