Pima County will host a series of open houses this week to solicit public feedback on the 10-year update of the county’s Comprehensive Plan.

The public will have an opportunity to comment on the first draft of the document, which was crafted to guide the region’s future growth, conservation and community design.

There will be no formal presentations during the open houses, but county officials will discuss the plan and gather feedback.

The plan addresses conserving the area’s cultural heritage and wildlife habitat, expanding the economy, raising the local per capita income and improving physical and social infrastructure for the next 20 years, according to a Pima County news release.

The first draft contains the plan’s vision and principles, along with goals and policies and a map showing planned uses for existing land and possible areas where change might occur.

County officials compiled the draft aided by feedback received at previous meetings and events and from online.

Once the first draft is reviewed and modified, county officials will create financial policies and implementation strategies.
