Extensive public participation is a key component of the County Comprehensive Plan and we want to hear from you throughout the process. Your thoughts, ideas, and participation are vital for the success of this effort. Over the course of the project, we will host several public meetings where we will ask for your input and feedback on the Plan as it is developed. Stay tuned for opportunities for input!
Draft Plan Public Meetings
The Project team will host public meetings later this summer or early fall. A draft plan will be available prior to these meetings. Tune in to Planning Board and Board of Commissioner meetings for updates on the plan.
Meeting in a Box!
The Project team compiled the following document to help community members to conduct their
own Meeting-in-a-Box. This is an engagement tool designed for use by civic and neighborhood
associations, community groups, or friends to gather and share their ideas for the future of
Henderson County. Public input is invaluable to the planning process and will help to inform and
shape the 2045 Henderson County Comprehensive Plan. This Meeting-in-a-Box toolkit contains
everything you need to host a discussion about the future of Henderson County!
