The plan provides guidance for achieving "the type of social, cultural, physical and economic land use character desired for eastern Summit County," according to officials.

The plan considers agricultural operations an important use for the land and protects "the right of farmers and ranchers to stay on the land."

Goals of the plan include preserving rural land and open space and providing an adequate supply of affordable homes.

Neighborhood meetings to discuss the general plan begin at 7 p.m. and are scheduled at the:

— Wanship fire station July 9
