Part 1: Guidelines | III. Links to Other Comprehensive Plan Elements and Other Plans
Linking the Water Resources Element and the Community Facilities Element – Supporting the County Water and Sewerage Plan
The community facilities element of the comprehensive plan should describe the goals and recommendations for water and wastewater infrastructure. In addition to goals and recommendations for financing, operation and maintenance and sewer hookups, this element should summarize (or refer to) the water quality/stream habitat protection and water supply development goals and recommendations listed in the WRE.
The County Water and Sewerage Plan will delineate proposed water and sewer service areas and identify the infrastructure needed to serve expected growth within these areas. These service areas must be sized and phased in accordance with the findings and recommendations of the WRE, since the WRE should indicate whether the water resources can support the proposed growth/annexation areas. Subsection III.E., Linking the Comprehensive Plan and the County Water and Sewerage Plan, describes the relationship between the Water and Sewerage Plan and the comprehensive plan in more detail.
