In Tuesday’s post regarding the comprehensive planning provisions of the smart planning bill I neglected to point out the important new notice provisions that will apply to cities and counties adopting comprehensive plans. Following a county’s adoption of a comprehensive plan, copies of the plan shall be sent or made available to neighboring counties, cities within the county, the council of governments or regional planning commission where the county is located, and public libraries within the county. After a city adopts a comprehensive plan, copies of the plan shall be sent or made available to the county in which the city is located, neighboring counties and cities, the council of governments or regional planning commission where the city is located, and public libraries within the city.
