Part 1: Guidelines | III. Links to Other Comprehensive Plan Elements and Other Plans
Sector and Subregional Comprehensive Plans
Jurisdictions that have small area, sector or subregional plans will need to determine the best way to approach the water resources element. It is recommended that a countywide WRE be prepared that serves as an umbrella for regional plans. The element will have to specifically state that the WRE takes precedence over any conflicting provisions in the subregional plans. Small area, sector or subregional plans should then be updated on a cycle that reflects the overall WRE. If a small area, sector or subregional plan also
contains a WRE, it must be consistent with the WRE in the county comprehensive plan, while still more specific to the smaller area.
