City Council unanimously voted to adopt the 2030 comprehensive plan March 10.

The 2030 plan update is a guide for future development and includes an update to the city’s future land-use map, guidance for the city’s gateways and primary corridors, and housing diversity and affordability, a news release said. The update also includes an implementation plan, which outlines how the city will use the plan during the next 10 years.


The update to the plan was developed with guidance from a steering committee and City Council as well as a robust community engagement process that included 78 presentations, three open houses, three online surveys and more, the release added.

It said six core ideas emerged from those community conversations and helped guide goal setting, policy formation, and the implementation strategy:

  • Distinct identity

  • Housing diversity

  • Complete neighborhoods

  • Transitions

  • Balance of commercial and residential

  • Intentional infrastructure
