Planning & Neighborhoods Team Focus

The Planning and Neighborhoods Team consists of two divisions; Neighborhoods and Comprehensive Planning and represents a collection of activities aimed at combining long range planning with on-going neighborhood activities, that have an emphasis on citizen engagement and fulfillment of the Great Neighborhoods philosophy.

The Planning and Neighborhoods Team is embarking on a new era of comprehensive planning, with the development of a new Land Use Plan.

In addition to the Land Use Plan, Neighborhoods staff is actively working on updating a number of neighborhood plans and supporting regulations that will be developed in concert with the Land Use Plan.

The goal of tackling these projects at the same time is to promote consistency and to build a coalition of neighborhood and community participants that will help support and provide input in the development of these plans and future implementation.
