What is a Comprehensive Plan?

  • A Comprehensive Plan is a document that states a community’s desired vision for the future.
  • It consists of a single plan or coordinated set of plans organized by subject and sometimes geographic area.
  • It will include a Land Use Strategy, Mobility / Transportation Strategy, Economic / Fiscal Strategy, Housing and Neighborhoods, Downtown / Key Focus Areas Strategy, Public Infrastructure and Stormwater Management Strategy, and Community Facilities Strategy.
  • While a Comprehensive Plan states the community’s vision for the future, it does not constitute zoning regulations or establish zoning district boundaries.

How is a Comprehensive Plan used?

  • A Comprehensive Plan is used to coordinate and guide the future establishment of development regulations.
  • It is used to provide a basis for future zoning decisions.
  • It also helps to guide public investments in transportation and other infrastructure improvements to aide in guiding future development.
  • It is a policy document that includes an implementation plan for use by City Officials.

Why prepare a Comprehensive Plan?

  • Texas Local Government Code requires zoning regulations to be adopted in accordance with a Comprehensive Plan.
  • Helps with the fiscal planning of city resources.
