Comprehensive Plan

The Comprehensive Plan is the guide to how Rice County will grow over the next 20 years and provides direction in making land use and development decisions in the county.


The 2040 Comprehensive Plan update is a civic engagement process in which all community members are encouraged to participate in developing a shared vision of the county’s future development and set broad planning policies that will guide county decision makers. These members include agencies, cities, citizens, landowners and townships.
