Comprehensive Development Plan:

In 2008 the City Planning Commission developed a timeline to update the City's Comprehensive Development Plan. A finalized plan was approved October 19, 2010 and now available for review:

 2010-2020 Comprehensive Development Plan.

The purpose of the Comprehensive Development Plan is to set forth direction for land use decision-making. The plan also provides a frame of reference and blueprint for future public and private development and investment.

This plan also contains goals-policies-objectives as a device to direct growth, development and change and is used as a guide in drafting amendments to the Zoning Ordinance.

If you would like a copy of the Comprehensive Development Plan it is available at City Hall for $27.50 or you may view it for free at the link above.
