That headline is sure to irritate a few people, so let’s look at it more closely. By “county” I mean the Winnebago County Board. “Long-range plans” refers to the county’s 2030 Land Resource Management Plan (LRMP). And “wasting tax dollars” refers to almost $300,000, or more, spent developing the LRMP.
According to the county’s website, the LRMP is: “a vision of how growth and development will affect land in the unincorporated areas of the County through the year 2030. More specifically, the 2030 Land Resource Management Plan details out the County’s growth goals, objectives and policies as well as illustrates same via the newly adopted 2030 Future Land Use Map.”
