Share thoughts on how the county manages growth
Residents who want to share their opinions on Hernando County growth management issues have through Thursday to complete an online survey as part of the Comprehensive Plan Evaluation and Appraisal Report process. The goal is to evaluate the performance of the county's Comprehensive Growth Management Plan and to update the plan where needed. The survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete. To take the survey, visit hernandocounty.us and select "Take Our EAR Survey." Survey results will be presented at future Planning and Zoning Commission meetings on the evaluation. For information, call Pat McNeese at (352) 754-4057 or visit hernandocounty.us/plan/EAR.
