PROJECT

General Plan

What is a general plan?

A general plan is a legally-required plan that guides current and long-term growth. The general plan should include the citizens' vision for the future of the community. It addresses land-use, housing, transportation, infrastructure, natural resources and other subjects of local importance. A general plan provides the legal foundation for zoning codes and major capital investments.

Resource Management Plan

What is a resource management plan?

A resource management plan is part of the general plan, and describes the existing conditions, desired future condition, and methods for monitoring progression of natural resources like water, air quality, tourism, transportation access, etc.

 

Data has been gathered and experts are being consulted to provide the best available information for this initiative. We hope you will participate and provide feedback on the desired future conditions of the County's natural resources.

SURVEY

While all comments are welcomed, we are particularly interested in those from Uintah County residents.

Each icon below will lead you to an issue briefing about that issue.  Thank you for your comments on any or all of the following:

PROCESS

1.

Data

Gathering

The first phase of this process is to gather socio-economic data on Uintah.  This data is analyzed to identify those issues that drive the County.  One of the most important sources of data is public input, so public comment tools are developed and meetings are scheduled.

2.

Resource

Planning

Once the baseline is developed, more detailed information will be gathered for the County's resources (such as water resources, energy, and recreation assets).  The Uintah Basin Association of Governments is partnering with the County to provide scientific data, stakeholder meetings are held, and the public is invited to comment.

3.

Community Planning

The County's current plan for housing, transportation, and land use are then updated.  The lessons learned from the resource management planning process will inform this phase, and further public meetings are held to gauge community opinion throughout the County.

4.

Information

Synthesis

Once all this information is gathered, it will be synthesized into policies and strategies that will be available for public comment.

5.

Plan

Adoption

After the draft plan has been revised it will be presented to the Planning Commission.  The commission will hold a public hearing(s) on the draft.  Their findings will then be submitted as a recommendation to the County Commission.  The Commission will then conduct hearings of their own, and if/when it is adopted, it becomes the guiding document for Uintah.
