This plan is the first ever Comprehensive Plan developed by the Village of Mapleton in an effort to ensure the quality of the community and safeguard the general health, safety, and welfare of its citizens. To effectively review current conditions and project future needs, the Village requested assistance from the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission. The comprehensive plan is an important tool for regulation and guidance of new development in a community. It is a long range planning document which forecasts the future community dynamics based on present data and assumptions. All future development will be judged by its consistency with the plan. The comprehensive plan declares a community’s municipal policies and purpose and provides the foundation for a development program.
In October 2013, the Village of Germantown Hills, in partnership with the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, began a journey to thoughtfully plan for its future.
