The comprehensive plan presents goals, policies and objectives for the immediate and long range protection, enhancement, growth and development of the community that were important in 2008 and remain so today. The Town Board, on July 18, 2016, reaffirmed the relevance of the 2008 Comprehensive Plan and moved to continue using it as a guide for the community for another 5 years.  
Comprehensive Plan

At the end of 2008, the Town of Greenville adopted a Comprehensive Plan to guide its citizens and town board over the next five years. Residents will work collectively to conserve and enhance Greenville's small-town rural character and natural beauty. Growth will be well planned and aestheically pleasing and will create new economic opportunities for all. Desired services will be supported by a productive tax base that is broad, diverse and growing.

The Town went through an extensive public process to develop the Comprehensive Plan. Steps included:
• Final Open Meeting
• Review by County Board
• Monthy meetings
• Visioning Workshop
• Community questionnaire
• Other open workshops
• Information posted on website

Comprehensive Plan Goals
