Four Meetings Are Scheduled To Allow Input For Development Of County Plan

By David Howell


WATER VALLEY – Four public meetings have been scheduled for community involvement in the implementation of a long-range plan to guide future growth in Yalobusha County. 

The first meeting is scheduled Tuesday, August 29, at the Water Valley courthouse at 7 p.m. as officials from the Stennis Institute of Government and Community Development will present information on county zoning.  

Joe Fratesi  will talk about how zoning works in Mississippi. Discussion will include the interaction of town and county regulations, how to direct growth and grow smart at the same time to chart the future path of the county.

The next three meetings allow community input into the plan and are scheduled in Coffeeville, Water Valley and Oakland. The first meeting will be at the Coffeeville courthouse on Sept. 11, followed by a meeting at the Water Valley courthouse on Sept. 12 and a third meeting at Town Hall in Oakland on Sept. 14. All three meetings start at 7 p.m. 

The meetings are the next step to develop a plan that will likely include land use regulations and possible zoning in the county after supervisors hired a planning company, Orion Planning +Design, back in April.
