In order for the City to develop in a strategic and intentional way, the City has adopted a number of long-range planning studies to guide the growth and development of the City.

These studies are based upon robust analysis and significant public outreach to listen and understand the community’s desires. Among other things, these plans help City Staff and Elected Officials make informed decisions about future development in the community and serve as a basis for Staff recommendations on development applications.

In 2004, the City adopted its first Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is an overarching document that provides general policies concerning:

  • Community appearance
  • Economic development
  • Housing
  • Land use
  • Parks, trails and open space
  • Regional cooperation and land use management
  • Transportation
  • Utilities and services

In addition to the Comprehensive Plan, there are also several City-wide studies pertaining to transportation and open space, as well as various sub-area plans that provide more detailed information about development in particular areas of the City.

We're updating the Comprehensive Plan!
