About Strategic Long Range Planning

The Strategic Long Range Planning Division (SLRP) of the RPA is responsible for producing the Comprehensive Plan as well as land use plans for specific neighborhoods, communities, or larger areas. This division also works on various special studies, zoning studies, and zoning regulations. Typical products produced by this division are plan documents, maps, illustrations, and visual presentations.

Staff routinely meets with developers, property owners, residents, and elected officials to discuss specific development proposals and the various issues and concerns that may arise from them. The SLRP division also assists the Transportation Planning Organization with transportation planning projects as requested.

Most of the projects undertaken by the SLRP staff are requested by the City of Chattanooga City Council, the Hamilton County Commission, or any of the other municipalities that the RPA serves. The division also assists various governments departments and agencies.
