Multi-Municipal Planning

  1. If 2 or more communities cooperatively plan some aspects of land use they may develop and adopt a multi-municipal plan. This practice allows cooperation among communities to direct uses to logical locations throughout a larger geographic area. It allows for planning across borders and saves money, minimize environmental impacts and preserves farms and open spaces.
