What is the Comprehensive Plan, and why is it important?

The Comprehensive Plan is a long-term plan that guides the community's development and quality of life. The Plan provides predictability for future development and preservation of existing uses and features, integrates specialized plans for land use, housing, and transportation, and provides a broad perspective for a twenty-year period that anticipates future needs for population and employment growth.
