Elements of a Comprehensive Plan:
A comprehensive plan is a policy document with specific components required by law. D’Iberville has the authority to prepare a comprehensive plan and implement planning through the enabling legislation, codified beginning at 17-1-1 Mississippi Code Annotated, 1972.
The specific legal contents of a comprehensive plan are set out in 17-1-1 of the Mississippi Code. Through the eyes of the law, four components are required of a document to constitute a comprehensive plan including: Goals and Objectives, a Land Use Plan, a Transportation Plan and a Community Facilities Plan. This plan contains each of these four elements along with some additional components which are useful in determining how best to accommodate future growth.
