Guide to Master Planning Released
We are pleased to announce the publication of the Guide for Master Planning in Delaware. Master Planning is one of the cornerstones of good government land use activities. Master Planning brings all stakeholders-state agencies, local governments, civic groups, and business leaders- together to actually implement certified comprehensive plans by spelling out the details of, and the responsibilities for, the provision of infrastructure services in an efficient, timely, and cost-effective manner. This guide is designed to help local governments and state agencies organize and implement Master Planning projects.
