The Comprehensive Plan is intended to be the most visible part of the planning process for a community, setting the direction for the future growth and development of the community.
To allow planning to work for the community, it is important to understand what is involved in the planning process. The planning process can be summarized as:
- analysis of existing conditions and characteristics
- application of accepted planning principles
- development of goals and objectives for the future
- creation of policies to guide future decisions and actions
Why is this helpful?
The Comprehensive Plan will be implemented on an incremental basis over time as landowners and developers approach the City of Junction City and Geary County with development proposals and rezoning applications. These proposals and applications should be considered in relation to the goals, objectives, and policies articulated within this plan.
