With the adoption of the 2040 Rice County Comprehensive Plan, one of the next step is to update all relevant land use ordinances to be consistent with the new comprehensive plan. The plan is to review items by first, focusing on those needing minor refinement or relatively short discussions, followed by looking at those needing more complex analysis with more in-depth longer discussions. The County's goal is to hold a series of joint work sessions, that will include members from both the Rice County Board of Commissioners and members of the Rice County Planning Commission, to discuss and propose revisions to the Rice County Zoning Ordinance.
Rice County invites citizens to provide input on potential Zoning Ordinance revisions by clicking on the Your Input is Requested image off to the right or by emailing comments to [email protected].
