DRAFT Strategies for State Policies and Spending released for public review

The Draft 2020 Delaware Strategies for State Policies and Spending (State Strategies) document and maps have been released for public review. The review period is from March 30 – April 30, 2020.

Please join us for Virtual Public Information Sessions on April 7, 2020; two identical sessions will be held at 10:00 am and 5:30 pm. The document, maps, and supporting materials are available on State Strategies website.

The State Strategies are a culmination of extensive coordination with local governments, citizens, and state agencies. They identify the State’s goals and policies for land use, infrastructure investment, and other priorities as developed by the Cabinet Committee on State Planning Issues. The document and map work together to direct state spending to support the most efficient use of state resources.

The map shows the Investment Levels described in the document. Forty data sets are collected from a variety of state and local agencies and analyzed to determine the areas most prepared for growth.  The policies and maps are updated every 5 years to stay current with growth, land use, and demographic trends.
