What is the Boone County Comprehensive Plan?

The plan focuses on the county as a whole, but also Boone County Government functions and the unincorporated areas of the county. Once complete, it will be a guide for county staff, departments, elected officials, and the general public over the next ten years.

According to the Boone County, IL website, "The Boone County Comprehensive Plan serves as the main guiding document for development within Boone County.  Not only does the plan reflect the vision of the County but it was also approved by various municipalities including the City of Belvidere, Village of Poplar Grove, Village of Timberlane, Village of Capron and Village of Caledonia.  In addition, the plan was approved by the Candlewick Lake Homeowners Association and the Hamlet of Garden Prairie."
