The Comprehensive Plan is the City's official policy guide for future development-related decisions. It is general and long-range in nature and provides a picture of how the community wishes to develop over the next 15 to 20 years. As a policy document, the plan provides a framework for residents and decision makers to conceptualize how the city should look and function, as well as the best methods and strategies for achieving those goals.

An updated revision of the Comprehensive Plan was prepared by the Planning Commission and the Department of Community Development and Planning and officially adopted by the City Council on February 12, 2019. The newly adopted plan is presented for download below.
