The 2021 Update of the City’s Comprehensive Plan serves as a guide for the decisions the City must make about growth, development, redevelopment, and change over the coming decade. The Plan continues the City’s established long range planning process, and creates a framework for managing future development. In many cases, the recommendations continue the basic policy directions set by the previous Plan. In other cases, the 2010 Plan addresses emerging issues or provides a fresh look at ongoing issues, such as housing and development of walkable neighborhoods.
