The Comprehensive Plan is an official statement by the City Council establishing major goals and policies concerning the desirable physical, social and economic development future of the city. The Plan represents the Community’s vision for how it wants to grow, change and renew itself. The plan outlines how it wants to develop its land, redevelop older areas, ensure adequate housing; provide roads, water, sewer, protect natural areas and meet other community goals.
The Metropolitan Land Planning Act requires every 10-years that all cities, counties and towns in the 7-county metro area review, update and amend if necessary their Comprehensive Plan. During the preparation of the plan, community input will be sought to identify issues and shape the goals and policies for the plan.
