Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 11th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government.

Next video in the series:
How does a County Determine where to put all the different pieces on the community. There needs to be a place for people to live, work, grow food, and sell goods. All these uses don’t always get along. The people who are in charge of planning and zoning are like the community crystal ball, they have to plan how a community will work not only now but into the future. The challenge for the county is to know what changes are in store for the future as communities grow and change constantly. Problems arise for citizens when they aren’t involved in the beginning of the process (General Plan), and results in frustration when they call for changes to be made after the plan is already been made.
