County Comprehensive Plans

1920-[ongoing]

Series documents the development and revision of a plan for the use of lands within the county. Series includes plans for transportation, energy, housing, population and economics, public facilities and services, urbanization, natural resources, greenways, recreation, agricultural and forest lands, land capability, resource quality, floodplains, landmarks, historic property, rural community center designation, and natural areas. Each plan includes background information about the subject; supporting documentation such as maps, charts, and diagrams; and a narrative description of each aspect of the plan and how it is to be implemented. Series may also include an overall "comprehensive plan" which contains both historical and current looks at county land practices and defines goals and policies adhered to during the creation and implementation of the plan.

The Web-based Deschutes County Property Information application includes urban growth boundary and related GIS map layers. The searchable DevDocs application provides information and images of various "date files" planning documents related to comprehensive plan text amendments. The Land Use Historical Maps include older versions of comprehensive plans, zoning ordinances, and related maps and information.
