For the first time in a 15 years, Hancock County is developing a new Comprehensive Plan - Future Hancock.
Future Hancock comes at a critical time. As Central Indiana and the greater Indianapolis region have grown rapidly in the last several years, so too have development pressures and opportunities in Hancock County. With its rural history, Hancock County has long been a boundary of eastern moving pressures in the region, but with recent economic development investments, as well as the growth of local Hancock County entities, portions of the County are seeing tremendous growth and opportunity.
As Hancock County remains a growing county with strong agricultural and rural connections, the County requires a Comprehensive Plan that addresses these elements and provides targeted recommendations that are founded on the community’s needs and desires.
Future Hancock will require your voice and input to ensure a countywide shared vision and blueprint for the future!
Comprehensive Plans address the future of housing, economic development, land use, utilities, natural and cultural resources, and more. It offers clear vision, strategy, and recommendations to meet the needs of current and future county residents and businesses alike.
The comprehensive plan is used to guide future decisionmaking in the county. Local officials, residents, and developers can refer to the Plan in making day-to-day decisions.
As a County resident, you live, work, and play here. Because you know the County better than anyone else. Your input and participation is important for shaping Future Hancock!
