Chapter 1. Introduction
This Comprehensive Plan focuses on land use: the development and protection of the natural and built environment. It represents both a contract and a guide. It is a contract with the community, clearly stating the current and future land use goals and objectives for the Village. It is a guide to help community decision-makers pursue those goals, identifying implementing measures and providing flexibility to respond to new opportunities and challenges in the future. The foundation of the goals expressed herein are based on the Village of Moravia’s core responsibility to protect and promote the health, safety, and welfare of the community. As such, this Plan will serve as a foundation for amendments to zoning regulations and the adoption of land use-related local laws.
