UPDATED – FALL 2017
UPDATE – 10/18/2017 – THREE UPCOMING CHANCES TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE COUNTY’S MASTER PLAN VISION!
From the Delta County Planning Commission Website: “A key outcome from the Planning Commission discussions was the desire to get your feedback on the vision and goals. Three community meetings are scheduled for mid-November. Community members will be asked to first work independently to review the vision and all goals in a open house format followed by breaking into small group discussion that takes dive deep into specific goals. The County will be asking questions such as:
Does the vision and goals move the County in the right direction?
If we were successful in accomplishing our goals, what would that success look like on the ground?
As we explore strategies to accomplish these goals, what do we need to keep in mind?
You may attend any (or all) of the meetings. The format will be the same each night.”
UPDATE – 10/4/2017 – On Wednesday, September 27, WSCC Executive Director Alex Johnson was invited to address the Delta County Planning Commission on the topic of Energy in Delta County. Alex recapped our data and input from the North Fork Alternative in the BLM Resource Management Plan, and advised the commission to use WSCC as a resource as the plan progresses. We will continue to engage the Planning Commission throughout the process, and encourage everyone to stay involved and participate in the process!

BACKGROUND INFORMATION – ABOUT THE MASTER PLAN
The Delta County Master Plan is a yearlong process that will define our County for the decades to come. According to the county, the master plan “provides the overall vision for how the built environment – infrastructure, housing, transportation, recreation, business and industry – support and complement the other less tangible aspects of community – the economy, health, the environment, and quality of life.”
The Master Plan is framed around this important question – How do we create opportunities for everyone to thrive while protecting the things that make Delta County unique?
