The Johnson County 2018 Comprehensive Plan was adopted May 17, 2018, by the Board of Supervisors and became effective upon adoption.The Comprehensive Plan and the individual Villages Plans are the primary long-range vision documents for the County.
The comprehensive plan is a long-range vision document which is articulated and implemented through the regulations in the Unified Development (zoning) Ordinance. The plan acknowledges that Johnson County is rapidly growing and changing. The plan is a collection of goals, strategies and action steps, which address physical land use, infrastructure management and needs, sustainability, environmental issues, housing and growth management strategies, local economy, and transportation issues. The plan also includes an implementation section. The purpose of the plan is to establish how and where change will occur in order that services can be adequately provided, and to create policies for managing change in a manner that best represents the needs of the County and its environment.

Village plans help small rural communities balance growth opportunities and preservation goals. Residents in the villages and other community members provide comments and ideas during input sessions (separate from comprehensive planning) to guide any future village growth. The final village plan works in tandem with the Comprehensive Plan and plays a role in decision-making by the County's Board of Supervisors, Planning and Zoning Commission, and the Board of Adjustment. A village plan does not require any property owner to change how they use their property or alter the current zoning. Eight of the nine villages have plans; the one without a plan (Windham) will have a planning process in the coming years. Click here to learn more about the Village Planning process.
