The City Master Plan serves as a guide for public and private decision-makers regarding the future physical development of the City. The master plan is composed of documents, or “elements,” that cover the City’s major geographical areas and its essential citywide facilities. These plans provide a framework for preserving the City’s unique character, ensuring its diversity, supporting investment and promoting desired change.
On June 18, 2013, the Planning Commission approved a resolution confirming the City Master Plan elements and and resource documents.
On July 15, 2013, the City Council adopted the South State Street Corridor Plan as an amendment to the Land Use Element.
