The Town of Wellington Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2021 as the guiding document crafted through community input to provide a 20+ year vision for the Town's future. The goal of comprehensive planning is to align that vision with expected growth of the community, ensuring the community's values, resources, and infrastructure are properly planned for.
Understanding the Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Code Update Process
This planning process began in 2020 with the Comprehensive Plan (the Plan) looking at all facets of the community, including but not limited to: managing growth; land use and development patterns; major infrastructure and facilities planning; attraction of commercial development (including development and redevelopment downtown); resource allocation (including looking at recommendations to maximize water supply); transportation; park and open space management; and regional coordination.
The Land Use Code serves as the regulatory tool to implement the principles and policies identified in the Comprehensive Plan. The two components of this planning effort enable the Town’s governing bodies in their decision-making, to move policy and development forward in a purposeful and productive way.
