Friday is survey deadline

Friday, Jan. 14 is the deadline for any Dickinson County resident interested in taking the planning and zoning department’s online land use survey.

The survey seeks input on a variety of land use topics. Information gathered will be used to update the county’s Comprehensive Development Plan.

The comprehensive plan is a long-range development plan for the county, according to Dickinson County Planning and Zoning Director Tim Hamilton. 

The plan addresses specific issues like housing, economic development, public facilities and utilities, schools, other infrastructure-type things and what the goals and objectives will be regarding those issues over the next 30 to 40 years.

Residents may complete the survey visiting the homepage of the county website at dkcoks.gov and clicking on the “Input for the Dickinson County Comprehensive Plan” link.
