Fentress County Comprehensive Plan

Fentress County is working with the Upper Cumberland Development District to create a comprehensive plan. The plan will include a broad evaluation of life in Fentress County and provide direction and strategies for encouraging economic growth.

Citizen input and involvement is an important part of the Fentress County Comprehensive Plan. If you are a resident or a former resident of Fentress County, we invite you to participate in a survey. If you would like to be involved in implementing the goals established, please provide your contact information at the end of the survey.

The comprehensive plan is funded through the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development’s ThreeStar Grant.

Please submit as many answers as you can. All answers will be kept confidential. The survey is open through May 31, 2019. Thank you for your help!
