YORK COUNTY — York County held the first of two public input meetings on Wednesday, Sept. 1 regarding the long term plan for development.

The meeting, which was held at Bruton High School, 185 E Rochambeau Dr, began with a presentation about the land use portion of the Comprehensive Plan, which addresses future land use and development in the County.

The Comprehensive Plan Review Steering Committee members and County staff then held an open house for citizens in the school’s lobby, where they presented large boards containing the land use map and allowing citizens to review and ask questions about the overall county and respective land use designations.

York County spokesperson Gail Whittaker said that between 50-60 citizens attended the meeting.

Committee members and staff were able to speak with citizens and answer questions they had, as well as provide forms for people to give input.

Whittaker said that the County appreciates everyone “who came out to the meeting, ask questions, and share their opinions.”

The county’s next public input session is Sept. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m., at Tabb Library, 100 Long Green Blvd.
