The state has approved funding for Montgomery County's first comprehensive plan. The Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs has awarded a $50,000 grant and the county has received $38,000 from Indiana West Advantage to fund the process.

The comprehensive plan document will outline a long term vision for development of unincorporated sections of the county over the next two decades. A steering committee has been established, but County Commissioner John Frey says they're just getting started. “The actual process will take us to the end of the year to complete and includes many public meetings to gain input from residents, land owners, and business owners before a draft of the plan will be done and submitted to the Plan Commission for review."

Various components of the plan include a statement of objectives for future development, a statement of policy for land use, policy for developing public places, infrastructure and utilities, and a history of existing conditions in the county. County Commission President Jim Fulwider says, “We have been without a formalized plan for too long and now is the right time to create that vision for our county’s future.”
