HANCOCK COUNTY — Officials have endorsed a plan for the Mt. Comfort Corridor that they’ll use until the county’s new comprehensive plan is completed next year.

The plan recommends land uses along the development-heavy corridor for officials to consider for future planning. Officials currently consult the county’s existing comprehensive plan, which was drafted in 2005 before an in-house update in 2012. The new Mt. Comfort Corridor plan is meant to bridge the gap until the county’s comprehensive plan finishes its update, expected next fall.

The Hancock County Board of Commissioners unanimously endorsed the plan Monday following a recommendation from the Hancock County Area Plan Commission.
