Yavapai County General Plan

The Yavapai County Comprehensive Plan 2032 was officially adopted by the Board of Supervisors on March 15, 2023. The Yavapai County Comprehensive Plan is a document that guides future growth and development in the County. It is a “roadmap” for safe, responsible growth and development in the County. It contains the long-term County vision for where to grow and what to protect in the future. It serves as a guide for good commercial development in appropriate areas, as well as identifying places of special significance that should be preserved and protected.

Arizona Revised Statute 11-804 requires that all counties must adopt or readopt a comprehensive plan every ten years, and must address eight important elements: Land Use, Growth areas, Transportation, Water Resources, Energy, Open Space, Environmental, and Cost of Development. Each of these elements work together to create a roadmap for future responsible growth. While the Comprehensive Plan is a policy document, it is not a regulatory document. Arizona Revised Statute 11-804(A) identifies the purpose and effect of the Comprehensive Plan in that it “shall be primarily as an aid to the county Planning and Zoning Commission and to the Board of Supervisors in the performance of their duties.”

The Comprehensive Plan is a guideline to aid in the decision-making process of the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. It is not a zoning ordinance, regulatory or taxing code; nor is it a specific area or community plan. The Comprehensive Plan does not delete or amend adopted ordinances, codes, special studies, or community plans.
