What are Land Use Assumptions?

Land Use Assumptions project growth over a 10-year period. They project population growth by using the number of housing units and non- residential growth by using building square footage and then spatially allocates this growth to designated service areas.

These projections are used in the Capital Improvements Plan to determine the necessary expansions needed to accommodate the increased impacts on infrastructure resulting from new development.

Land Use Assumptions require approval by the Planning and Zoning Commission or other citizens committee following a public hearing.
