COMPREHENSIVE PLAN GOALS & OBJECTIVES
The Town of Troy has partnered with Walworth County and thirteen other County communities in it’s vision and planning for the future through The Multi-jurisdictional Comprehensive Plan for Walworth County: 2035.
“At the heart of this vision is a sustainable land use pattern, served by efficient public facility and service systems, that meets the social, economic, physical, ecological, and quality-of-life needs of the County. This vision includes relatively compact urban areas providing basic urban services and facilities; a safe, efficient transportation system; a strong agricultural resource base closely connected to resource-rich open spaces; a clean sustainable water resource; and abundant public and private recreational opportunities-all while retaining the County’s cultural heritage and rural character.”
