What's a Plan?
A city plan uses community input, research, and surveying, to guide how to improve housing, neighborhoods, jobs, shopping options, transportation, and public space.
Plans also identify how to turn the ideas in the plan into action. Once completed, City Planning works with other city departments, partners, and community groups to make the plan happen.
The final version of the plan will be presented for adoption at a City Planning Commission meeting. Open to the public!
Once the plan is adopted by the City Planning Commission, our staff will start working on making it happen, in partnership with community organizations, West District residents, fellow City departments, and other partners.
Thank you to all the organizations and residents who participated in shaping the plan!
