Wasco County 2040

Copy of Timeline Comp Plan

The Wasco County Planning Department, Planning Commission, and Board of Commissioners have identified the need to update our Comprehensive Plan.  Since its adoption in 1983, the Comprehensive Plan has served as the vision document that informs our Land Use and Development Ordinance and how we implement state and local land use regulations to achieve that vision.  Over the years, the Comprehensive Plan has had some revisions while many portions of the document have remained unchanged.  This means much of our primary long-range planning document – our vision and goals document – is more than thirty years old.

To best serve our community and create the most sustainable future for Wasco County, the Planning Department staff envisions drafting a new Comprehensive Plan that captures not only where we have been and where we are now, but where we would like to go.  A large part of that work involves you – community members and stakeholders – to help craft a path forward.

Here is the work we have done to date:
