Comprehensive Community Planning and Land Use Review

Comprehensive Community Plan

The Comprehensive Community Plan, developed by members of City and State government, non-profit organizations, and residents, promotes orderly growth and development that recognizes the natural and historic characteristics of the land, its suitability for use and the availability of existing and proposed public and/or private services and facilities.

The Plan is also designed to promote an economic climate which increases quality job opportunities and overall economic well-being of the City and the State while balancing housing choices and recognizing the importance of affordable housing. This Plan in turn is used by our department to ensure proper and effective development in and for the City.
