ABOUT THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
The Town of Blowing Rock Comprehensive Plan is intended to serve as both a physical and policy plan to guide the Town in its future decision making concerning land use and development, preservation of the natural environment, recreation and cultural resources, economic development, municipal services, transportation, and regional cooperation. The Town intends to build upon the foundation of the 2004 Comprehensive Plan as a starting point to develop the update. The plan update process began with a community survey that was completed in the fall of 2012, with the results and subsequent analysis compiled by NC State University Center for Urban Affairs. The Town will utilize those survey results, a public visioning process, and the current comprehensive plan to develop an updated plan that provides policy direction for the next 10 to 20 years. The updated plan will establish meaningful and achievable goals, as well as strategies and policies for the implementation of the plan.
