Wasco County 2040

The Wasco County Planning Department is currently in the initial stages of a Comprehensive Plan update (Wasco County 2040).  The Comprehensive Plan is a long range vision document helping to guide development for the County for the next 20 years. 

This survey is intended to be one initial method to understand community visions for Wasco County development over the next 20 years.  The information provided will be analyzed along with other public input to develop a more focused work plan for the three year update process.  For more opportunities to participate, please visit the project page at wasco2040.com.
