Why Do We Plan?
Our founders recognized the social and economic value of thoughtful planning, and today we enjoy the high quality of life attributable to their planning. The City's Comprehensive Plan captures the community's vision for our City and presents a series of policies to help guide daily decisions. But planning is an ongoing activity that reflects and anticipates changing conditions, so we pause every 5 years to assess our Comprehensive Plan and make sure it remains relevant and effective. The plan was updated in 2022. The next required update will be in 2027.
Commitment to Community Engagement
To be effective, the Comprehensive Plan must include public input from a broad range of people with different perspectives and experiences. The public participation for the Comprehensive Plan included a citizen Steering Committee appointed by the City Council as well as monthly public workshops and meetings.
