The primary purpose of Area Plans is to provide a general vision and guide for future development that balances growth with protection of the area’s natural resources, cultural history, and established neighborhoods. Working with the public to identify key issues is an integral part of each Area Plan process. The Area Plans will provide projections for anticipated growth, forecasts of school enrollment, a better understanding of land use, water and sewer needs and traffic impacts.

Once adopted, Area Plans become the new policy guide to help elected officials, city staff, and private developers make decisions about zoning, capital improvements, and preferred locations for, and types of, development.
