Please take a few minutes to look at our department pages to see some of the exciting projects that we have been/are working on to help improve our community. One project in particular, the Comprehensive Plan, encompasses all our departments and their multitude of projects and plans.

The Comprehensive Plan, also known as the Tricentennial Plan, was completed in 2006, with revisions made in 2009 and 2012. It is once again time to review and update our existing Plan. Now is the time to reflect on what has been completed, identify what still needs to be done, and determine if priorities have changed requiring any adjustments in the course we are headed. This document will help shape our community by identifying issues, opportunities, and priorities and allocating resources accordingly. We need your input on how you think we (the City, County, and collective community) are doing and where we should be headed. Please take five minutes to answer a few questions to assist us with this process: TAKE THE SURVEY
