Comprehensive Plan Update

The Project

The Town of Waynesville is updating the 2002 Waynesville: Our Heritage, Our Future 2020 Land Development Plan.   The project presents an opportunity for residents, business owners, and other stakeholders to have a say in the Town's future growth, development, and quality of life.  An effective Land Development Plan and Future Land Use Map will implement a vision for growth and conservation for the community and will reflect Waynesville's unique identity and goals as a community. 

The Plan will analyze community demographics and existing conditions, establish goals, and create strategies relevant to land use, economic development, housing, transportation, utilities, natural resources, recreation, and more. 

What is a land development plan and why do we need one?
