Food System Plan Draft (January 23, 2017)

This draft community plan provides strategic recommendations to help guide the development of the local food system and enhance agricultural uses and rural character in Douglas County. As part of its process to update the community’s comprehensive plan, the Horizon 2020 Steering Committee asked the Douglas County Food Policy Council (DCFPC) and its staff to develop a set of goals, objectives, and policies to “ensure the master plan is fitting the true needs of the community.” This has been created in response to that request.
