The McHenry County Board adopted the 2030 Comprehensive Plan on April 20th following development by the Regional Planning Commission. The three-year planning process involved extensive participation by property owners and residents, community leaders and advocates, and municipal and township officials. The Plan serves as a general guide for the development and redevelopment of the County and for the preservation and enhancement of its natural and agricultural resources.
