The Wythe County Board of Supervisors is currently in the process of reviewing the proposed Comprehensive Plan as recommended by the Wythe County Planning Commission. The plan is designed to be a decision-making tool to help guide the growth and development of the county.  The plan is general, long range and comprehensive.
