RELATIONSHIP OF COUNTY PLANNING TO SUBSURFACE DEVELOPMENT
The objectives of county planning are stated, zoning in mining areas is discussed, and comments are made on the multiple use of underground areas. The planning department's goal may be attained through: the utilization of good design while maintaining efficiency and economy in the development of industrial land; the ensuring of compatibility of any development with that of surrounding land users; the maintenance of aesthetics; the encouragement of industrial development at sites where transportation is available; and assisting other county government divisions in attracting and locating industry that would benefit the country. At the present time, a heavy industrial zoning classification allows multiple use of the area in regard to development, and county planning emphasizes the desire to coordinate and assist in the subsurface developments which will ensure the compatibility and protection of the industrial areas with the surrounding land. The conversion of mined-out areas into multiple uses substantially increases the utilization of the land.
