What's a comprehensive plan?

A comprehensive plan is an in-depth look at all the things that make up our city:

  • Businesses and industries
  • Economy
  • Environment
  • Historic resources
  • Homes
  • Sidewalks
  • Streets and others

That sets the City’s goals, objectives, and policies related to each. The plan anticipates how much our population will grow over time and what the City will need to do in terms of guiding development and facilitating economic prosperity to offer future residents a good quality of life. In turn, the plan serves as the basis for development regulations such as zoning and permit requirements. It also provides a foundation for the City’s future investments in public infrastructure such as parks, roads, and public buildings.
