Long Range Planning
The 2060 Comprehensive Plan was formulated in several phases: an initial community assessment; definition of a vision statement and evaluation of growth alternatives; identification of key community development components; goal development and plan implementation. Citizen involvement drove each of these phases of plan development and will be integral to its execution.
As the city grows, the neighborhood unit becomes increasingly important as a source of housing, shopping, employment, entertainment, education and social networks. For neighborhoods to remain viable, there also needs to be a strong sense of personal safety as well as a commitment to improve and maintain property in the area.
The City Council approved two neighborhood studies in 2004 and two in 2006. The projects include public infrastructure improvements such as new street lights, fire hydrants, sidewalks, access ramps, a revolving loan fund for private residential improvements, as well as organizational assistance through neighborhood building block programs like neighborhood and business watch, block parties and neighbor labor.
