FLORENCE COUNTY: LMI-Florence County Land/Lake Use Plan

Purpose

Florence County proposes to classify and analyze the types of social, physical and regulatory data that are available for the lakes and their watersheds in the county. The project will identify deficiencies in data and make recommendations for additional data collection. The ultimate goal is to develop a long range plan that will protect and enhance lake quality in the County. Three distinct advisory committees will be established and products include: extensive information and education efforts, identifying those areas most suitable for development and identifying wetlands, floodplains and lake shoreline that are least suitable for development, population characteristics and future trends in demographics will be addressed. Information will be presented on various employment characteristics, employment sectors, and tourism aspects. Housing needs as well as age of housing, values, and types of housing units will be assessed. A land use inventory to identify conflicts between existing zoning will also be included and a digitized information data base created using GIS. A transportation improvement program and outdoor recreation section will be included along with existing public facilities. A findings and needs assessment will be developed to address future land use and lake development. Policies will be developed and a land use and lake protection plan will be prepared.
