Do you have ideas for how Hopkins County should grow? Where should new development be located? Are there issues relating to transportation, land use or housing in Hopkins County? The Planning Commission needs your help! Hopkins County is currently working on a comprehensive plan that will identify goals, policies and action steps to guide development and growth for the next 20 years.
The Hopkins County Planning Commission is creating a countywide Comprehensive Plan and invites residents and business owners to be part of planning the future of Hopkins County. This plan will serve as a statement of the community’s vision, providing direction for future development within the community, including land use, transportation, recreation, and more. It will also include an analysis of existing conditions, create goals and strategies for land use, transportation and community facilities as well as provide specific action steps to be taken over the next 20 years.
The Comprehensive Plan is driven by public input and the Planning Commission needs your ideas, comments and feedback. “We want as many residents and business owners to share their ideas about what Hopkins County needs. This will be our roadmap for the future,” said Ted Adkins, director of the Hopkins County Joint Planning Commission. They invite residents and business owners to be part of planning Hopkins County’s future.
“We want to make sure Hopkins County continues to be a great place to live and raise a family. Everyone’s ideas are important in this process,“ said Adkins. Everyone is asked to help identify issues and share ideas during one of three public workshop at Hopkins County Central High School (6625 Hopkinsville Road) on October 28th, Madisonville North Hopkins High School (4515 Hanson Road) on October 29th, or Dawson Springs High School (317 Eli Street) on November 7th. All workshops will be held from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. People of all ages are encouraged to attend so bring the family and help plan Hopkins County’s future.
