Comprehensive Plan Update

About the Plan

The City of Monroe, in partnership with Rundell Ernstberger Associates, has begun a process to update the City’s Comprehensive Plan.  This planning process will outline a vision and strategic framework for future development, redevelopment, and community capital projects within the City.  It will also ensure that Monroe continues to maintain a high quality of life for residents and is competitive economically.  The current comprehensive plan was created in 2010 and since then, the City has seen significant growth. Concurrently, other adjacent governments have updated or are in the process of updating their Comprehensive Plans.  Given all the present opportunities and growth that has occurred in Monroe, a new comprehensive plan is needed.

The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to guide Monroe’s Council, Plan Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, Park and Recreation Board, and staff regarding the type, location, and intensity of development and redevelopment in the City.  It will describe an aspirational vision and contain several goals and recommendations related to future land use, transportation improvements, quality of life initiatives, and economic development efforts; implementation policies; and project priorities. As part of this plan, a couple of subareas will be selected for more detail analysis and recommendations.
