The 2040 Plan repeatedly emphasizes using growth areas to manage growth. The growth areas will allow for responsible growth while keeping rural areas rural. The designated growth areas are:
Town of Louisa
Town of Mineral
Many of the designated growth areas have a close proximity to the interstate. Not only is this intended to fulfill business needs, but is intended to largely reduce thru traffic in the County. The map below provides a quick visual that the majority of our 514-acre county will remain rural in nature.
