What is a subarea plan?
A subarea plan is a type of long range plan that is prepared for a limited geographic area within a community. These can be focused on neighborhoods, corridors, downtowns or special districts. Because of the narrower focus, subarea plans typically encourage a greater level of public participation as compared with a citywide planning process. Subarea plans are generally consistent with a comprehensive plan, but typically provide a higher level of detail in the analysis and recommendations.

The City of Wheat Ridge has adopted several subarea plans.
