CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -The Jefferson County Planning Commission will meet tonight to determine how to gather public input on a proposed new comprehensive plan for the county.

It is likely the planning commission will have at least two public hearings on the plan, said Stephen R. Bockmiller, the county's chief planner.

The planning commission will determine tonight what format the public hearings will take, among other issues, Bockmiller said.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the county meeting room, which is located beside the Jefferson County Courthouse at 108 E. Washington St. The meeting is open to the public, but discussion will be limited to members of the planning commission and its staff.

After accepting public input on the plan through hearings, the planning commission will consider making changes to the plan based on comments they may receive, Bockmiller said.

Any changes made to the plan as a result of public comments would likely be completed by mid-February and the plan should be ready to send to the Jefferson County Commission by late March or early April, Bockmiller said.

The commission has to approve any new comprehensive plan before it can be implemented, Bockmiller said. The commission can request the planning commission make additional changes to the plan before they approve it, Bockmiller said.
