We're proud of Oak Grove's strong roots.
Let's ensure the city's BRIGHT FUTURE!
What is a comprehensive plan,
and why should it matter to me?
At its core, a comprehensive plan is a vision for the future of a community. Comprehensive plans are created by and for the community to record shared goals and desires that determine what their city will look like and how it will function in the future.
A comprehensive plan examines what a community is, where it came from, and crafts a coordinated road map for the future. This road map guides the growth and development of the community for the next 10 to 20 years, and is revisited to ensure its relevance.
Comprehensive plans are not zoning; they are policy documents that focus on topics like land use, transportation, parks and recreation, economic development, and more.
What does the planning process look like?
The planning process will take approximately nine months and consist of five primary phases: from Discover, where a baseline understanding of Oak Grove is developed, to Engage where the community shares their voice, to Plan and Refine when the actual road map for the future of topics like development, connectivity, and housing are recorded, to Implement when the new comprehensive plan is put to work.
