Comprehensive Plan

With assistance from the Region XII council of Governments, Greene County has developed the 2008 Greene County Comprehensive Plan. Planning assesses the current conditions in an area and identifies strengths to build upon and weaknesses to improve. It also sets out an implementation program that specifies when actions are to be taken.
