Land Use Planning
Our goal is to ensure the integration of public health requirements and goals with land use planning and design decisions. Public health evaluation of development projects includes the areas of sewage disposal, water supply, water quality, vectors, hazardous materials, noise, and solid waste. We assist in the evaluation of County development projects and planning documents for the following committees:
