Comprehensive Plan UPDATE

The Public Engagement Process is underway for the new Miami County, Kansas Comprehensive Plan!

What is a Comprehensive Plan? A comprehensive plan is a long-range document that guides the county’s future growth and development, its priorities, and its services.  Miami County last updated its Comprehensive Plan in 2004. See the Comprehensive Plan Map for a visual representation.  

Miami County is looking to the future and updating its Comprehensive Plan.  The new Comprehensive Plan will build upon previous plans, balancing urban development with rural lifestyles to ensure that the County may continue to sustainably grow and develop to accommodate the needs of its residents.  The new Comprehensive Plan will also assess the current state of the County; identify the County’s biggest assets and future challenges; and set forth policies for future land use, transportation, recreation, quality of life, and natural resource management.
