Looking Back and Planning Ahead
Recognizing the importance of planning, the Columbia County Board of Commissioners opted into the state's Growth Management Act (GMA) in 1991. The GMA requires the City to address several aspects of planning, including adopting and revising a Comprehensive Plan.

The current City of Dayton Comprehensive Plan was originally approved in 2008 and updated in 2015.

With change inevitable, the Comprehensive Plan enables the community to anticipate and deal constructively with changes occurring within the City. The plan is a vehicle through which citizens and officials can express their goals for the future of the City.

Some recent developments that already have impacted or will impact the City in the future include:
