Long Range Planning

General Plan (formerly Comprehensive Plan)

The General Plan is an official document adopted by the City that serves as a guide for making land use changes, preparation of capital improvement programs, and the rate, timing, and location of future growth. It is based upon establishing long-term goals and objectives to guide the future growth of a city.

The Development and Neighborhood Services Department maintains the most recent General Plan which was last updated in 2018. Click here to view the General Plan.
