County Growth Plans

Reference Number: 

In 1998 the Tennessee General Assembly passed Public Chapter 1101, which requires a coordinated planning effort among a variety of public and private entities throughout the state.  The legislation also reforms procedures and requirements for annexation and incorporation. Public Chapter 1101 was codified in T.C.A. § 6-58-101 et seq.  The law calls for the development of a comprehensive growth plan in each county, covering projected growth for 20 years.
