    Land Use Plan vs Future Land Use Plan

    What is the difference between a Land Use Plan and a Future Land Use Plan?

    I think I remember that the Land Use Plan is merely an inventory of current land uses, but a Future Land Use Plan is a guide as to how the city foresees the potential uses of land to eventually be.

    Is there a legal difference as to which one is part of the Comprehensive Plan?

    I'm just a lowly intern, so you can take this with a grain of salt. I've seen both types of land use plans incorporated into the comprehensive plan under the land use/growth management chapter. Our city requires any new developments to comply with the Comprehensive Plan; so if you include a future land use plan in the comp plan, you should be able to require developers to conform with it. I think this varies a good bit from state to state though. Hope that helps!

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    The existing land use plan which you are referring to is more commonly known as a land use inventory or survey. Land Use Plan/Futue Land Use Plan = same thing. A plan for how the community wants to be developed.
