DENTON 2010 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE
PLANNING COMMISSION WORKING SESSION
January 10, 2023
MUNICIPAL GROWTH AREA
The Denton Planning Commission will discuss planned growth areas, a component of the Municipal Growth Element required in local comprehensive plans. A municipal growth area includes properties currently outside the corporate boundary that could be considered for annexation in the future. A primary objective is to ensure the Denton Comprehensive Plan is consistent with and supports growth patterns envisioned in the Caroline County Comprehensive Plan, including potential business, commercial, and industrial development opportunities to address the Town and County’s economic development objectives. A growth area may also address health concerns associated with residential properties adjacent to the Town experiencing failing septic systems. In addition, identifying future growth areas provides a basis for assessing infrastructure and service demands and costs associated with the urbanization of these areas.
Ordinance No. 737, Comprehensive Plan Amendment – An amendment to the Town of Denton’s 2010 Comprehensive Plan, dated September 13, 2010, to modify the goals and objectives of the Mixed Industrial (MI) District.
