Comprehensive planning is allowed by Indiana Code Title 36-7-4-500 series. The law gives municipalities, like Hamilton County, the capability to approve and adopt a Comprehensive Plan. By Indiana Code, the plan must have at least these three elements:
A statement of objectives for the future development of the jurisdiction.
A statement of policy for the land use development of the jurisdiction.
A statement of policy for the development of public ways, public places, public lands, public structures, and public utilities.
Meetings in the Townships will be conducted to gather the Public input as it relates to the update to the current Comprehensive Plan. The following sections will display information relating to each of the Townships.
All Adams Township meetings will take place at:
