Annual Long Range Planning Work Program

Long Range Planning Work Program LogoThe Washington County Board of Commissioners adopts a Long Range Planning Annual Work Program to identify planning staff's annual tasks. These include ordinances, projects and other transportation and community-planning activities. 

A draft annual work program is expected to be presented to the Board in March. In prior years, the draft program was developed earlier because the County Charter restricted land use ordinances adoption to March-October. In November 2020, voters approved a charter amendment abolishing this restriction, allowing land use ordinance activity to be conducted year round.

After review and consideration, the Board authorizes the draft program to be released to the public and interested parties for a 30-day review and comment period. After considering comments received, the Board approves the adoption of the program.

Ongoing priority tasks from the 2020-21 Long Range Planning Annual Work Program include:
