Forward 2040 Plan update adopted

In early August, the City Council adopted the Forward 2040 Comprehensive Plan update. The comprehensive plan sets the City’s 20-year vision and implementation priorities to guide the development of and public investments in City facilities and services, including parks, trails, fire stations, roads, sewer and water systems, and housing. 

The comprehensive plan is updated every 10 years, and the 2040 plan replaces the comprehensive plan adopted in 2009. City planning staff prepared the update with guidance from a resident advisory committee and input from technical staff across various City departments. Numerous community engagement, awareness and input opportunities were provided throughout the three-year planning process.
