Comprehensive Plan Update

Comprehensive Plan

The Update Process 

In order to be effective and successful, the Comprehensive Plan must be a “living” and dynamic document. Community decision makers rely on the Plan, so periodic reviews and amendments must be made to keep it current. 

Beginning in June of 2017, the Planning and Zoning Commission, with input and advice of other City Commissions, undertook a mid-term revision of the 2009 Comprehensive Plan to update statistics and other data. This update also recognizes the completion of the water, sanitary sewer and transportation plans, reflects completed implementation actions since the 2009 adoption, and incorporates additional information, goals and objectives related to changing global climate conditions. 

The Moscow Planning and Zoning Commission hosted an open house on October 24, 2018, to allow the public an opportunity to learn more about the Comprehensive Plan update. A month-long public comment period followed, and the Commission would like to thank the many citizens who provided thoughtful and discerning input. A public hearing before the Planning and Zoning Commission was held January 23, 2019, where the Commission recommended approval to City Council. Following a public hearing before City Council on March 4, 2019, the updated document was fully approved. Please click HERE to review the new document.
