York Forward 2035 - York County's Comprehensive Plan
Comprehensive Plan Update - 2022
On March 6, 2023, the York County Council approved the update of York Forward. The process to develop an updated plan included a coordinated review of each goal and strategy with the Planning Commission. A series of community-wide open house meetings were held to define the purpose of each element, to recognize achievements made over the past five years, and to show proposed amendments. The effort resulted in a Plan that is relevant to current conditions, addressed changing needs of the community, and identified new key programs and partners to facilitate growth management initiatives.
Associated Area Plans
The Comprehensive Plan is refined through Area Plans that focus on specific areas with unique challenges. Once adopted, an area plan becomes a component of the Comprehensive Plan.
