Comprehensive plan.  Provides that the comprehensive plan shall control the future land use decisions of the governing body. No zoning amendment shall be approved unless it has been determined to be substantially in accord with the adopted comprehensive plan. However, a governing body may approve a proposed zoning amendment that is not in substantial accord with the comprehensive plan if the advocate for such proposed amendment can make a substantial showing that the land use change will serve the purposes of the zoning ordinance.
