 SHEPHERDSVILLE – It’s been a long process to update the Bullitt County comprehensive land-use plan.

But, it is finally getting on the path of completion.

The first in a series of meetings to discuss the plan will be held this Thursday, March 21, at the Bullitt County fiscal courtroom.

The meeting at 7 p.m. will be conducted by Kriss Lowry, whose firm has been retained to revise the current plan.

During this Thursday’s meeting, Lowry said she would be doing most of the talking.

The goal is to set forth the process and how important the comprehensive plan is to the county’s future.

The hope is that many elected officials from the county and eight cities will be present.

“It will put everyone on the same page,” Lowry said of the meeting’s goal.

On Thursday, April 4, the public would have its first real opportunity to give its views on the land-use plan. The first public interactive meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

A second meeting would be held on Thursday, April 25, at 7 p.m. Future meetings will be held on May 23, June 27 and July 25. Locations have not been set for those meetings.

The major mission for Kriss Lowry and Associates is to revise the land-use chapter, which has not been altered since 1997. The comprehensive plan is often used to justify zoning changes in the county.
