Mission Statement

The purpose of the Fayette County Comprehensive Land Use Plan is to provide a basis on which to:

  • Manage growth and development, particularly around the interchanges of the proposed Mon-Fayette Expressway
  • Identify infrastructure needs and manage the development to meet those needs
  • Preserve agricultural land and open space, and conserve natural resources
  • Enhance land use controls (zoning, watershed management, subdivision, and land development) to provide adequate protection and direction of future development within the County
  • Improve the current quality of life while preserving the essentially rural character of the County
  • Enhance economic development and tourism opportunities involving natural and historic resources
  • Increase housing diversity and availability
  • Improve cooperation between all levels of local government in order to position the County effectively to leverage regional, state, and federal development programs for the future
