Area and neighborhood plans are considered “specific plans” meant to implement General Plan policies on more localized level. There are over 50 adopted specific plans (area, neighborhood, redevelopment and sub-regional plans) across the City. These plans contain policies related to land use, future development, transportation and connectivity, open space, and other topics.
The development of new plans must be initiated by Mayor & Council. Amendments to adopted plans can be initiated by Mayor & Council or by a property owner within the plan area.
