Part of the Future Hancock Comprehensive Plan Process

As part of the Future Hancock Comprehensive Plan Process, the Hancock County Area Plan Commission established the Future Hancock Steering Committee – comprised of 11 members that represent the County government, towns, schools, businesses and other area stakeholders. The role of the Steering Committee includes guiding and informing the overall process, in addition to building consensus and support for the vision, guiding principles, policies, and recommendations that are an output of the planning process. The Steering Committee will work with the consultants and County staff, while engaging with the public throughout the process.
