This strategic visioning exercise is the first of a number of public engagement opportunities that will be presented by the consultants hired to assist the County with the update of the Garrett County Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of this activity is to gather input from citizens to create an image of a desired future for the county in 20 years. Future meetings will use that vision to shape specific recommendations for how to bring that vision to reality.
The public is also encouraged to visit the county’s Comprehensive Plan website at At that site access is given to the 2008 Comprehensive Plan as well as other useful information. There is also a public comment form that can be used to submit comments. In addition, the public is invited to follow and comment on the Facebook page created and managed by the consultants, AECOM. It can be found by searching for Garrett County Comprehensive Plan in your Facebook search bar.
Any questions can be directed to Chet Parsons, AECOM, at or 304-381-9261 or Deborah Carpenter, Director, Garrett County Planning & Land Management at or 301-334-1924.
