SIMPCO is currently working to deliver a new Woodbury County Comprehensive Plan 2040 to help guide the county forward through the next 20 years. The goal of the project is to develop a 20-year policy-guiding Comprehensive plan that will help ensure that future plans for residential, commercial, and industrial growth, county services, facilities, and amenities remain consistent with the visions and desires of Woodbury County residents and businesses. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has affected the County and resident’s daily life, the Plan will also address public health, safety, and disaster response, recovery, and resiliency planning. This project is partially funded by a U.S. EDA CARES Act grant.

SIMPCO is excited to work with Woodbury County to develop the Plan and will be conducting several opportunities for public input throughout its development, both virtually and in-person. Surveys and events will be publicized on this page, through Woodbury County’s information outlets, City Halls, and various social media outlets.

Please contact Erin Berzina for more information on this exciting project. See below for more information on meetings, surveys, and plan development!
