City Council unanimously voted to adopt the 2030 Comprehensive Plan during its regular meeting March 10.
The 2030 plan update is a guide for future development and includes an update to the City’s Future Land Use Map, guidance for the City’s gateways and primary corridors, and housing diversity and affordability. The update also includes an implementation plan, which outlines how the City will use the plan during the next 10 years.
The update to the plan was developed with guidance from a steering committee and City Council, as well as a robust community engagement process that included 78 presentations, three open houses, three online surveys, and On The Table. In total, more than 3,800 community conversations helped shape the 2030 Plan update.
Six core ideas emerged from those community conversations and helped guide goal setting, policy formation, and the implementation strategy:
- Distinct identity
- Housing diversity
- Complete neighborhoods
- Balance of commercial and residential
- Intentional infrastructure
“This plan represents the community’s passion to learn from the past, build upon the good, and inspire new growth to complement the best parts of the City,” said Sofia Nelson, Planning Director. “Georgetown is a unique community that has cast a vision and is ready and excited to implement, monitor, and be a steward of the vision it has developed for 2030.”
