What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A comprehensive plan is a guidance document for the purpose of maintaining a

balance between development, culture, equity, and community within a town.

Topics addressed in a Comprehensive Plan generally include –

Housing needs

Economic opportunity

Open spaces and natural resources

Historic and cultural resources

Marine resources


Future land use

A plan is a roadmap for the future,

and while it may suggest ordinances or mandates,

it ultimately has no authoritative power.


Why Should Sullivan Update their Comprehensive Plan?

3 Major Reasons for Having an Updated Comprehensive Plan:

* Eligibility for federal, state, local, and private funding

* Implementing zoning ordinances above state requirements

* Planning for your town’s future.
