​​​​​A Master Plan is a long range plan that guides City decisions on various important issues such as:

  • suitable locations for businesses, home and mixed-use development
  • opportunities to expand or improve open space such as parks, recreational areas, and civic facilities
  • strategies for economic development
  • conservation of natural, historic and cultural resources
  • strategies for transportation to solve congestion and improve transit services

It is important for citizens to get involved in the master plan processes because it affects​​​​​​​​​​​ them in how they do things everyday and what will happen in the future.​​​
