The Riley County Vision 2025 Committee has been working for two years to develop an updated Comprehensive Plan that provides better guidance regarding development decisions. The Plan also includes recommendations on how to change existing regulations to best implement the goals and objectives of the Plan. A draft of the Plan has been approved by the Committee, the Riley County Planning Board, and the Riley County Board of Commissioners as a sufficient draft for presentation to the public. A copy of the draft Plan and Maps are available at the following links: 2009 Vision 2025 Draft Plan and 2009 Vision 2025 Draft Maps. Public meetings will likely be scheduled for the March/April timeframe to present the Plan to the public and receive comment regarding whether or not changes are needed. The public meetings will be sponsored by the Riley County Planning Board, as they are the primary body that will initially determine changes and eventually formally adopt the Plan. The Board of Commissioners must also formally adopt the Plan in order for it to be valid. Questions regarding the Plan can be directed to Monty R. Wedel, Riley County Planning & Development at (785) 537-6332.
