Carroll County Commissioners have unanimously adopted a master plan that will “outline future economic, residential and agricultural development”. This plan has been in the works since 2009.
According to the Carroll County Times,
“This plan addresses the short-term needs of the county while looking to the future without jeopardizing either of those two,” said Commissioner Doug Howard, R-District 5. “It shows you can have a plan that recognizes the need for economic development and the financial base that’s needed without jeopardizing the rural nature of the community, and I truly believe you can have a document that allows for good, solid long-term planning without jeopardizing the core values of our county and our nation.”
