About the Plan

In brief, the community has put forth an effort to not only produce a document that outlines the necessary items required to comply with state mandates, but also reflect the needs of the unified government and citizens. The Comprehensive Plan was divided into five areas of focus: People, Prosperity, Place, Vitality, and Foundation. Each element of the plan is approached with these areas of focus in mind.
