State agency planners will meet to review land use change proposals and planning documents prior to giving input to local governments, who make the final land-use decisions.

Comprehensive Plan Questionnaire Due July 1st
Per 22 Del Code, §702(g) all municipalities are required to submit a Comprehensive Plan Annual Report Questionnaire to the Office of State Planning by July 1st. The information in this questionnaire is very important as our office will use this information to prepare the October annual report for the Governor highlighting community's accomplishments and the progress made each community has made in implementing their comprehensive plans. In addition, The Comprehensive Plan Annual Report gives each community the opportunity to express any issues and concerns that our office can help address through coordination with State agencies.
Guide to Master Planning Released
We are pleased to announce the publication of the Guide for Master Planning in Delaware. Master Planning is one of the cornerstones of good government land use activities. Master Planning brings all stakeholders-state agencies, local governments, civic groups, and business leaders- together to actually implement certified comprehensive plans by spelling out the details of, and the responsibilities for, the provision of infrastructure services in an efficient, timely, and cost-effective manner. This guide is designed to help local governments and state agencies organize and implement Master Planning projects.
