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.
