“The primary goals of the Comprehensive Plan are to attract, develop and retain a diverse and stable workforce that will sustain a healthy economy and, develop implementable strategies to produce vibrant, prosperous, and stable communities. The most effective way to accomplish this is through engagement and participation from citizens and key leaders,” said Chris Bova, deputy director of the Department of Planning and Development.
