The future land use map is a community’s visual guide to future planning. The future land use map should bring together most if not all of the elements of the comprehensive plan such as natural resources, economic development, housing and transportation. It is a map of what the community wants to have happen; it is not a prediction. The future land use map is not an official map nor is it a zoning map.
“A strong economy, a healthy environment, and an enjoyable quality of life-all depend on the land." -Diamond and Noonan
