    Rural land use plan survey

    My agency is launching its first ever county land use plan initiative. We have a Comp Plan, but the land use map only applies to the incorporated city area.

    This is a very rural county. For those of you who have done this type of plan, did you do a public survey for data gathering? If so, I'd love it if you could share. I'm particularly interested in what rural specific questions we should be asking.

    This would be something we'd have posted on our website and something we can hand out at our 4 upcoming public information sessions.

    Thanks in advance!

    Our state mandates comp plans.

    If you're in Kentucky, the first person I would check with is John Prine.

    Since I was the one that opened this thread, I'll let you all know what we did.

    I came across surveys done by my agency in 1990 and 1996. I had the staffer working on formatting the survey change the format to match those surveys and recycled a lot of the questions. It came out to a 2 page survey that we have available both as a PDF and as a Google documents link on our website.
