Municipal Development Plan Goals:

The goals of the Municipal Development Plan indicate the overall direction the County wishes to take in managing land uses. In preparing these Plan goals, recognition has been given to the important role the agricultural and natural resource industries have played in contributing to the growth and development of the County.

Based on this understanding, the following plan goals have been identified:
1. To provide opportunities for well-planned growth.
2. To provide opportunities for increased economic activity.
3. To protect agricultural operations and natural landscapes.
4. To balance economic activity with the protection of agricultural operations and natural landscapes.
5. To encourage population growth within the 20-34 year age groups (young families) to settle in the County through the MDP Policies and also additional partnerships, cooperation, and policies.
