DRAFT Downtown Plan
Graham has been working on a Downtown Plan to allow us to update our infrastructure and steer design choices in the future. A copy of the plan, which hasn’t yet been heard by the Graham City Council, is available here: Draft Downtown Plan
Graham adopted a new comprehensive plan effective September 5th, 2015. The Graham 2035 Comprehensive Plan has a few changes that were undertaken as a result of feedback from Council members and the public at the meeting, which will be forthcoming. Please inquire if you have any questions regarding the plan.
Our old plan was the Growth Management Plan 2000-2020. This plan served the citizens of Graham well, and helped guide us through a major housing boom in the mid 2000’s, as well as the economic recession of the late 2000’s. The fact that it worked for both situations suggests the diligence of the committee who worked so hard to make it happen. Thank you for your involvement!
