Land Use Plan & Map

In 2010 the Land Use Advisory Committee recommended that the Board of Trustees adopt the land use plan below. Please carefully review the Trustee's adopted resolution #2011-005. The Trustee's adopted the recommendations with two modifications that are not depicted on the Land Use Map or in the final document. 

2017 Land Use Plan Updates (In-progress)
A Land Use Plan is a policy document that serves as a vision for the future which is intended to guide decision making that designates appropriate land uses based on infrastructure and development constraints for physical development. Comprised of policy statements, principles, goals, objectives, strategies and maps, the Plan guides the physical, social, and economic development of the Township and its neighborhoods, including both private and public development. The 2011 Land Use Plan has helped guide the Township to address development issues for this community to pursue, however, new information, technologies and demands face the community that must be dealt with in order to manage growth in a responsible and respectful way. Land is an exhaustible resource that once developed and converted to a use, is often difficult to change. Land will continue to be developed, but the pattern, rate, timing and location of how land is developed can be shaped by the Township through well-founded planning policies. When considering the future land use pattern the key question is not whether or not Danbury will grow, but how it will grow and change to serve future residents. In January 2017, the Board of Trustees appointed a Steering Committee to review and update the Land Use Plan. Below is all the information that has been reviewed and discussed by the Steering Committee.
