The 10 master plans and appendices below contain land use recommendations, transportation improvement recommendations and park master plans (where applicable). Master plans, by their nature, are subject to periodic review and changes to reflect changing local conditions, refined neighborhood visions and city policies, demographic shifts, and other factors. Plans have been developed for the year 2035 based on a variety of data, including projections of population and employment growth, economic conditions, travel patterns and behaviors, and existing physical constraints and opportunities. From time to time, with appropriate community and technical input, these plans may be revisited and adjusted.
These documents can all be downloaded as PDFs. The Master Plans files may exceed 100 pages each and the Appendices may exceed 200+ pages, so please plan for large files sizes.
