Sector Planning Overview

 Sector Planning is “organized brainstorming” to develop preferred scenarios for future growth and redevelopment within a given sector of the city.


Sector Plans can provide a basis for:
  • making near-term and long-term land use decisions
  • forming redevelopment and improvement strategies
  • identifying Capital Improvement needs
  • updating the Comprehensive Plan
  • developing “carrots and sticks” to implement the plan
  • identifying the need for additional studies and plans
Sector Planning Steps:
  • In-house data collection, analysis, and mapping
  • Meetings with city departments
  • Meetings with outside jurisdictions and agencies
  • Distribution of a public survey
  • Meeting(s) with public stakeholders
  • Development of alternative/preferred land use scenarios and associated goals and strategies
  • Plan adoption
