struggling with issue of whether the comprehnsive plan is more valuable with parcel specific land use designations with more numerous catagories or as a simple character of development future vision ie urban suburban rural.
Issue is our current plan is not much different from a the zoning map--different colors everywhere on a parcel by parcel basis, minimal policy text to go along with it.
Hope is to use more policy direction as to location, form, density, and design.
Development community concerned over perceived loss of entitlement if colors go away (ie red on this corner for commercial, yellow here, brown there.
Essentially we seem to have a euclidean comprehensive plan.
Is there a better way?
