​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 July 7, 2015, the Planning Commission approved a Master Plan Resolution (PDF) confirming the City Master Plan elements and ​resource documents.


In addition to the recommendations provided in the City Master Plan, the Planning Commission relies on several resource documents that provide additional detail for interpretation and implementation of the recommendations.
