What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for the future based on the values and aspirations of our community. It addresses topics such as:

  • Development
  • Economic development
  • Housing
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation

It gives a universal view of the whole city, is a tool to prepare for change, and acts as both a business plan and guidebook for decision-makers.
