Sector Planning


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


Sector Plans

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
