Master Planning is an integral component of the Complete Communities framework. It complements and integrates other planning activities. Local comprehensive plans articulate visions and formulate general guidelines for achieving desired land use patterns in counties and municipalities. Master Planning brings all stakeholders—state agencies, local governments, civic groups, and business leaders—together to “get it done” by spelling out the details of, and the responsibilities for, the provision of infrastructure services in an efficient, timely, and cost-effective manner.
In September 2012, the Office of State Planning Coordination introduced the Guide for Master Planning in Delaware. Visit the Master Planning and Complete Communities section of the toolbox for more information on master planning in Delaware.
