A comprehensive plan is a dynamic planning document which describes how a city will develop over time and enhances how its citizens live, work, play, shop, and learn in the diverse communities that are developed as a result of a plan.
Comprehensive plans are written based upon what citizens identify as important community goals and policies for all types of development within the community. An adopted comprehensive plan will manage the location of population and job growth as well as public investments in infrastructure (such as streets, sidewalks, parks, and sewers) over the next 20 years. A plan sets guidelines for community involvement and influences what private development and public facilities will look like — all to ensure that Damascus is a complete community where people can live, work, play, shop and learn.
The Damascus City Council has referred a comprehensive plan for the November 2014 election. It can be viewed HERE.
