The town staff and Board of Commissioners have developed several plans that direct the future of the town. These plans have been developed with significant thoughtful research and community input.
The budget is a financial plan containing an estimate of proposed expenditures for the fiscal year, the proposed means of financing the expenditures, and the goals and objectives of those expenditures. It ensures the town's resources are allocated toward priorities identified by the Board of Commissioners. A fiscal year starts July 1 and ends June 30.
The Budget Division is responsible for preparing the town's budget, under the oversight of the town manager and in collaboration with the various departments and divisions.
This plan serves as the town's comprehensive plan, guiding future growth development zoning, annexation, land use and transportation. It identifies needs for regulations and ordinance amendments.
The future land use map is a part of the Comprehensive Sustainability Plan. It indicates the range of uses the town would favor in an area. It does not guarantee a successful rezoning request, nor does it obligate an owner to seek rezoning. For detailed future land use information, visit the town's interactive online map.
The Planning and Economic Development Division oversees the map.
The Strategic Growth Plan provides a framework for continuing discussions about growth in the Hillsborough area between the town and Orange County's jurisdictions. It documents the growth potential around Hillsborough, considering available water capacity and the transportation network.
The town uses a strategic plan to align available resources with priorities. The plan is used in coordination with the budget and the Comprehensive Sustainability Plan.
