The Comprehensive Plan represents the City's long-range plan for improvement, development and growth over the next ten to fifteen years. The Plan includes goals and objectives for the future of the community as well as long-range recommendations for land use, transportation, and community facilities. The Plan includes detailed recommendations for specific subareas within the City, that are of particular interest to the community, and it sets forth a long-range guide for the maintenance and enhancement of existing community areas, and for improvements, developments and redevelopments within the city. Simply put, the Comprehensive Plan establishes a foundation for future decision making regarding land-use and development.
The Plan was developed through information gathering from three open house meetings and a community survey. It was discussed at a number of Planning Commission, Heritage Preservation Commission, and City Council meetings in 2017 and 2018 and finally adopted on September 4, 2019 by the City Council.
