Comprehensive Plan Amendments

As with any major Plan, revisions, adjustments, amendments, and corrections need to take place. These changes will fall into one of two categories, major or non-major amendments:

Major Amendments

Major amendments are amendments to the plan that take place only once during a calendar year, and must be completed in the year in which they were started. Major amendments are defined as a substantial alteration of the County's land use mixture or balance. The criteria for a major amendment are defined within Chapter 10: Implementation of the Pinal County Comprehensive Plan.

Non-Major Amendments

Non-major amendments may be considered at any time of the year. These amendments are proposed changes to the Pinal County Comprehensive Plan that do not fall under the major amendment criteria listed in the Comprehensive Plan. Additional information regarding Non-major amendment criteria can be found within Chapter 10: Implementation of the Comprehensive Plan.
