Following direction from the City Council, the City embarked on a Comprehensive Plan Update that began in the fall of 2008. The City hired a consultant, Clarion Associates, with expertise in comprehensive plan development to assist the City in updating the plan. In addition, the City formed a Citizens Advisory Committee to provide advice and feedback to the Planning Commission and City Council on the development of the Plan.
On October 12, 2009, City Council approved a resolution, Resolution 52-2009, adopting the Envision Wheat Ridge Comprehensive Plan.
What Is A Comprehensive Plan?
A comprehensive plan is a policy document that provides the vision for what a community wants to become and the steps that need to be taken to reach that vision. The plan provides guidance and direction to local leaders who are responsible for implementing desired changes and charting the future of the community. The comprehensive plan is adopted as official policy documents by the local governing body.
