Mr. Chesar explained the reason for having a Comprehensive Plan. The last time it was updated
was in 2010. When decisions are made for rezonings, changes to the Planning and Zoning Code,
and obtaining grants an updated Plan provides a legal basis and goals for staff. The Plan helps the
citizens and elected officials determine the future and improve the quality of life for everyone.

Referencing the Housing Study, Mr. Chesar confirmed Mrs. McElfresh’s understanding that it will
feed into the Comprehensive Plan.

Sorry...I don’t trust McElfresh. I can’t put my finger on it, I just don’t.
