Comprehensive Plan & Land Use Code Update

The Town is updating its Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Code to identify and articulate the community vision and objectives that will set the road map for the Town’s growth from now into 2040.​ For more information on this process and timeline, see the bottom of this page.

Get involved!

​Listening to and responding to you, the Town's residents, is key to enhancing this planning effort. For this reason, as illustrated on the project timeline further below, there will be many opportunities for you to get involved. Your involvement means that the Town's policies and programs are shaped 'by you' and 'for you'.

Phase 1 & Phase 2 Engagement Series are now closed! Thanks to everyone who participated and contributed to over 600 submissions. We'll be busy summarizing the great feedback received to date. Expect to see a summary document for each phase posted on this website over the fall.

Other ways to get involved... To stay informed about project updates and other involvement opportunities, please be sure to follow us on Facebook @WellingtonCo1905 or come back to this website often.

Until then, check out what the community values most about Wellington. This word cloud was developed from over 300 submissions received during the project's first phase. The larger the font, the more a word was repeated.​​

Understanding the Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Code Update process

This planning process will start with a Comprehensive Plan (the Plan) looking at all facets of the community, including but not limited to: managing growth; land use and development patterns; major infrastructure and facilities planning; attraction of commercial development (including development and redevelopment downtown); resource allocation (including looking at recommendations to maximize water supply); transportation; park and open space management; and regional coordination.

​​The Land Use Code will serve as the regulatory tool to implement the principles and policies identified in the Comprehensive Plan. Once finalized, the two components of this planning effort will enable the Town’s governing bodies in their decision-making, to move policy and development forward in a purposeful and productive way.​
