Yavapai County General Plan

Development Services kicked-off the Yavapai County Comprehensive Plan Update process on November 19, 2020.  The Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan) is a state required policy document that guides future growth and development in the County.

All residents are encouraged to participate in the process and share your thoughts and ideas. We would like to hear from you on how you would like to see your communities grow, and what are some of your concerns, needs, or desires that can be addressed  by the Comprehensive Plan Update process, and through the  policies, goals and objectives therein. You can also contact the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee  (CPAC) and share your concerns, needs, or desires. 

Please contact Planning@yavapaiaz.gov for more information on the Comp Plan or to learn how you can participate, please join our mailing list.
