Comprehensive Planning

Comprehensive Planners conduct long and short range planning projects using specific demographics at various levels (county, place, census tract, etc.) to identify historical as well as future patterns of development within the community and surrounding areas. Comprehensive Planners also study shifts in neighborhood ethnicity, specific ages of individuals in the community, income levels, along with many other types of data to forecast challenges and opportunities for the community. Local officials, other governmental agencies, and involved citizens can assist in shape sustainable communities.
