Comprehensive Plan

The Comprehensive Plan is designed as a framework for guiding future development, redevelopment, and community enhancement in the city and it surrounding planning area over the next 20 years and beyond. The purpose is to establish a vision, along with realistic goals and achievable strategies, that residents and other stakeholders will support. The current plan was adopted in 2009.
