Comprehensive plans for Jefferson County and the locales contained within will shape the future of what our home looks like. The comprehensive plans should NOT include any heavy industry. These plans are reviewed when businesses express an interest in coming to Jefferson County. Most recently, a request was submitted to rezone an area to accommodate heavy industry. The petition was suspended when the requested amendment was considered inconsistent with the city of Ranson’s Comprehensive Plan. You can read more about that win here.
