Focus 2030 is the Comprehensive Plan for Warren County, including the cities of Bowling Green, Oakland, Plum Springs, Smiths Grove and Woodburn. It represents the culmination of over five years of work by the Planning Commission Staff and a citizen Comprehensive Plan Task Force. It is the officially adopted guide for actions and decisions on the use and development of private and public land, the provision of governmental services and facilities, the planning of streets, highways and other modes of transportation, the planning of facilities including water, sewer, storm drainage, parks and open space.
The plan document provides a general overview of the process undertaken to prepare the Focus 2030 comprehensive plan. It presents the major findings and trends, the opportunities and the challenges facing Warren County. It presents a clear vision statement for the next 20 years; provides direction and makes recommendations on how to implement the plan to realize the vision in a world of growing complexities and ever changing technologies. This plan is envisioned as being open ended. This means that it should be and must be periodically updated, altered and revised as the needs of the community change. The Focus 2030 Comprehensive Plan is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate changing conditions and needs but at the same time, its goals and objectives are permanent enough for long term decision making. The plan was developed to reflect the needs of a changing and growing community and to meet legal requirements. The Plan does address the issues raised by citizens and by the Comprehensive Plan Citizen Task Force.
