Comprehensive Plan

The 2011 Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan) was developed as a long-range planning tool to guide future development on the island. It is an important document used by staff, decision-making bodies, and even residents. The plan identifies goals, objectives and strategies concerning conservation, growth, and humanity elements.

  • The quality and character of the island's commercial and employment districts, industrial centers, and key corridors such as Broadway Boulevard, Seawall Boulevard, and 61st Street;

  • The conservation and improvement of neighborhoods citywide, including the rebuilding and renewal of neighborhoods damaged by Hurricane Ike;
  • The protection and management of sensitive natural and cultural resources; and,
  • Investments in the island's transportation network, community facilities, utilities, and other support systems
