The success of the Town's General Plan Update depends on your participation! We truly look forward to hearing from you!
A general plan guide’s the Town Council and staff in making decisions as the town continues to grow and experience change. It is the foundation used to establish zoning regulations, develop our Strategic Plan, create Capital Improvements Plans, amend the Town Code, and can be used as support to solicit grant funding.
Arizona law requires the General Plan be updated every ten years. The last General Plan was adopted in 2010, so it now needs updating. The Plan must include elements (chapters) for Land Use, Circulation, Open Space, Growth Areas, Environmental Planning, Cost of Development, and Water Resources. Additional elements may be included if public dialogue directs a need, such as Economic Development and Housing.
Once the General Plan is adopted by Council, it will go on the 2020 General Election Ballot to be ratified by the voters. The General Plan provides the goals, objectives and policies for future actions of our town:
There are no upcoming meetings or events associated with the review and adoption of the General Plan at this time. They will start up again in the Fall when the consultant provides drafts of the proposed new plan. In the meantime, you may email comments, questions, and suggestions to Town staff.
