Land Use & Community Design

Land use and community design establish a context for development aligned with the community’s desired image. Land use affects the physical development of a city, including the:

  • Satisfaction of resident needs
  • The vitality of the local economy
  • The protection and enhancement of the natural and built environment
  • The efficiency of public infrastructure and community services

Land use and community design decisions will always impact the future in significant and sometimes irreversible ways. Our land use policies must balance the need for growth with the protection of the environment and existing community assets.

Critical Questions:

  • How do we develop and plan for purposeful growth?
  • How do we plan for redevelopment and revitalization of our existing community to meet the needs of the future?
  • How do we enhance our community’s design and appearance?
  • How do we protect the environment and meet the needs of the future?

Through our Ignite Comprehensive Planning Efforts, we will explore how to:

  • Plan for purposeful growth, revitalization, and redevelopment
  • Enhance community design and appearance
  • Protect the environment and meet the needs of the future

The Ignite Foresight Hub will provide important information and potential strategies to help the community answer these questions.
