What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan is a planning document that implements the long-range vision of the community.  It guides how a community will develop in areas, such as land use, transportation, water resources management, parks & trails, housing, resiliency, and economic competitiveness.   You may download the 2030 Comprehensive Plan here.   This document will be the starting basis for the development and creation of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan.
