In 2009 the community was asked again to discuss county issues and prepare an updated strategic plan that will be applicable for the next five to ten years. The new plan reflects short and long term visions for Rockcastle County. The current Development Board meetings which take place the 4th Wednesday of each month, review current projects in the county. Some projects are funded by grants secured by the Development Board which is a 501c3 organization. The Development Board initiates or assists other organizations to complete projects that are reflected in the strategic plan or projects that become a priority.
