The basis of any planning effort lies on a foundation of community involvement and in-depth study of the demographic, social, and economic conditions within a place. Hardin County's Comprehensive Development Guide will rely on community stakeholders, businesses, elected officials, and those living and working within the county to help direct the community's future vision. In the coming weeks, a copy of the draft plan will be found here for download and review.


Public Engagement

Over the course of the comprehensive planning process, the planning team has engaged over 850 members of the community through both in-person and online engagement. Meetings and presentations were held in Elizabethtown, Glendale, Cecilia, Radcliff, and Rineyville.

Meeting summaries for the engagement can be found in the "Our Engagement" tab.
