Halifax County supes, planners solicit comment on comp plan / August 07, 2017
Halifax County supervisors and planners will host a joint public hearing Monday at 6 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex to get public comment on the Halifax County 2017-2037 Comprehensive Plan.

Staffers, along with members of the planning commission, citizens and the Southside Planning District have worked over the past nine months to complete the final draft of the plan.

Focus groups and community meetings were held with individuals who held valuable knowledge, experience and vision for Halifax County’s future in the areas of education, housing, community facilities, land use and development and transportation.

The plan includes updated maps for commercial and industrial growth, public facilities and services, transportation, community and housing economic growth and the environment. It also includes proposed language to promote the development of renewable energy resources, such as wind and solar.

The purpose of the plan is to provide a long-range plan to guide the growth and development for the County over the coming years.

County Administrator Jim Halasz said both the staff and the planning commission “feel very comfortable with the draft” which supervisors are expected to approve following the public comment period.
