Why is Community Planning Important?

Because it helps the City plan for the future!

A Community Plan looks at what kind of community you want to live in, and the ways we can get there. Looking forward 10 or 20 years, what do you envision for your community? We want you to engage in the vision for your future here – the City’s future!
