What is a comprehensive plan and why should it matter to me?

At its core, a comprehensive plan is a vision for the future at a community scale. Comprehensive plans are created by and for the community to record shared goals and desires for themselves and their fellow community members.


A comprehensive plan examines what a community is, where it came from, and crafts a coordinated road map for the next 10 to 20 years and can be revisited to ensure its relevance.
