What is long range planning?
Long range planning is a strategic process that addresses the needs of a community. Long range planning can be done at a citywide level or for smaller geographic areas.

The planning process involves gathering data, visioning, identifying community issues and goals, examining future trends, developing possible future scenarios, selecting a preferred scenario, and creating an action plan for implementation. Long range planning depends on public input and strives to build consensus around a future vision.
