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. 

The information below summarizes what the planning team has found during their initial analysis of existing conditions, as well as, input and feedback from the plan's steering committee and the public. These will be updated as the plan progresses.
