At the Board of County Commissioner's Annual Retreat, the Board identified a Strategic Initiative aimed at revising, reformatting, and generally improving the overall usability of the Tallahassee-Leon County Comprehensive Plan. Per this direction, the format of the Comprehensive Plan was redesigned to modernize its appearance and for better readability. No changes to the contents of the Comprehensive Plan were made in the reformatting process.
