What is a Master Plan? 


A Master Plan is a comprehensive long range plan intended to guide growth and development of a community or region. The Master Plan provided here provides guidelines for the Downtown Community Redevelopment Area (CRA). It includes analysis, recommendations and proposals for the future population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, and land use.

A Master Plan is based on public input, surveys, planning initiatives, existing development, physical characteristics, and social and economic conditions. A Master Plan is a policy based document; it does not regulate land use or zoning.
