Future Plans

In preparation for the future, the City has created a series of plans to help guide and manage growth. Throughout the processes community members were asked to provide input about each plan before ultimately being adopted by City Council. These plans serve as the City’s vision helping to direct Staff toward a shared goal. These plans may also be useful to private developers seeking to invest in our community by providing information about our communities strategic vision, land use goals, future transportation investments, and other capital projects which may impact commercial site selection or residential development decisions.
