DELTA COUNTY– Delta County is in the process of updating it’s master plan. The goal of the plan is to guide the county’s priorities for the next 10 to 20 years.
Focus groups have been conducted the past three days highlighting strengths and weaknesses in things like economic development, education, public health and tourism and recreation. The plan hasn’t been updated since 1996.
“We will increase our opportunities by having a master plan to be competitive for grants and other financial opportunities,” said Philip Strom, Delta County Administrator. “We will be looking at capital improvement plannings as a county. Our buildings, our infastructure and to be able to finance those large scale projects, we need to take advantage of many resources that are out there.”
The master plan is expected to be completed in April 2020. A website is being created to keep the community updated and informed, it’s www.deltacountymasterplan.weebly.com.
