Agenda Title:

14CA002 - Amendment to the Comprehensive Plan by adopting “Plan Rapid City” Comprehensive Plan (14TP011)


Plan Rapid City, the City’s new comprehensive plan, is a long-range planning document that provides guidance on where and how the community will grow and evolve over the next 25+ years. Comprehensive Plans typically consist of maps, policy statements, and goals and objectives addressing issues relating to growth, housing, economic development, transportation, environment, parks and open space, aesthetics, community character, and historic preservation and conservation. The City will use the Comprehensive Plan as a guide for land use and public investment decisions. Property owners, citizens and decision makers will use it to guide and inform their decision-making on land use issues, such as where residential, commercial and industrial development should occur in the future, and at what densities. Community organizations will use the Plan to work toward a common community goal for the future.
