Comprehensive Plan

Project Overview

The Comprehensive Plan was updated by the City Council on March 17, 2015.

The Comprehensive Plan serves as the City’s key policy document and outlines the general direction for the city. It provides an integrated approach to all aspects of the Arlington’s development with focus on developing attractive and prosperous neighborhoods for all residents of the City; enhancing land use and transportation coordination; stimulating economic development; and encouraging environmental sustainability. The citywide plans developed that provide detailed policies and strategies should align with the Comprehensive Plan as these plans are considered components and implementation tools of the Comprehensive Plan.
