County officials interested in aligning the county’s growth plans with changes to municipal master plans will begin the process with Brunswick. In a public hearing today, county commissioners will discuss updating the county’s principal planning document to coincide with Brunswick’s stated planning goals over the next two decades and beyond. That alignment would be dubbed the 2012 Brunswick Community Plan Amendment. Adopted by the Brunswick mayor and council in November, the city’s plan reflects projected growth of about 500 acres, according to Bruce Dell, Brunswick’s planning and zoning administrator. About 75 percent of the growth is planned for the east side of the city, with the remainder to the west.
