Roque Bluffs Comprehensive Plan Update

Roque Bluff's current Comprehensive Plan was written in 2001. Since then, much has changed and a great deal more information is available about Roque Bluffs. This includes the 2000 and 2010 Census, a record of civic investments, new and different businesses, and all kinds of digital (no longer just paper) maps of natural resources. The Comprehensive Plan Update pulls together information on a wide-range of community issues to assess trends and establish town policies.  The Town of Roque Bluffs appointed a Comprehensive Plan Update Committee in June of 2014 and will actively meet over the course of the next 18+- months.
