What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A comprehensive plan is a policy document that details the City's long-term vision and goals and outlines the steps necessary to achieve them. The plan is intended to guide growth and development in an organized, efficient, and sustainable manner. To do so, it looks to the future to anticipate trends and issues that could impact how growth and development occur. The plan is long-range in scope, focusing on the ultimate needs of the community rather than the pressing concerns of today.

Comprehensive Plan Update

While the planning horizon for a Comprehensive Plan is typically 20-30 years, it's important to review and update the plan in the interim to ensure the vision described in the plan is still the vision residents have for the community. The City's existing Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2009. Since that time, many of the plan's goals have been completed and new opportunities have been presented. With extensive public participation, residents will create a playbook for the City that outlines the steps needed to achieve the community's vision.

To help us with this important task, the City has hired consultants Town Planning & Urban Design Collaborative (TPUDC). We look forward to hearing everyone's voice during this update process. Visit this website often to stay updated on progress, events and to provide your input and feedback.
