Plan Commission Handbook, May 2002
A vision is an end state. It is what you want to look like in 20 years. It should help to guide your decision making process.
Over the next 20 years, the predominant visual character of Honey Creek will be a scenic rural landscape of heavily forested bluffs towering over broad fertile valleys and well maintained family farms…
Now that you know where you are going. What steps
Do you need to take to get there?
Objectives suggest future directions in a way that is more specific than goals.
ARO-1: Maintain, modernize and enhance a strong agricultural infrastructure in the Town and surrounding region.
ARO –4: Research, provide information, and encourage alternative economic opportunities that would enhance or supplement agriculture as an occupation.
Policies are rules, courses of action, or programs used to ensure Plan implementation and to accomplish the goals and objectives.
ARP-2: Allow cottage industries and home occupations in the Township that would enhance agriculture-related business.
3.) Some communities have just identified policies and that is okay too.
NRCP3 – Enhance wildlife habitat by encouraging landowners to develop wildlife sanctuaries, windbreaks…
BE REALISTIC TO AVOID BURNOUT!
Three new windbreaks will be planted in 2007 as a result of the new incentive program.
All new driveways installed will satisfied the safety
and habitat fragmentation standards outlined in the Plan.
TAKE THE TIME TO FIND THE BEST IDEAS NOT JUST THE FIRST IDEAS!
DON’T REINVENT THE WHEEL
PARTNER WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS
Goals are broad, advisory statements that express general public priorities about how the Town should approach preservation and development issues.
Preserve our farmland and enhance the strong farm community that creates a socio-economic environment, which supports agricultural opportunities to ensure agri-business as a viable career choice.
