What Is A Comprehensive Plan?

A comprehensive plan is a policy document that provides the vision for what a community wants to become and the steps that need to be taken to reach that vision. The plan provides guidance and direction to property owners, residents, elected and appointed officials, City staff, and local leaders who are responsible for implementing desired changes and charting the future of the community. The comprehensive plan is adopted as an official policy document by the local governing body.
