Comprehensive Plan Update
The previous Comprehensive Plan was partially adopted from the DRAFT submitted in 2001. Since then the City updated portions of the Plan as they became necessary for continuity and guidance. A Parks and Open Space Plan was adopted in 2004 and a Thoroughfare Plan was adopted in 2007.
In mid 2007 a process was initiated to identify interested citizens for participation in the Leander Comprehensive Plan Update effort. The Planning and Zoning Commission appointed a Comprehensive Plan Update Committee (CPUC) for the purpose of reviewing and updated in the existing Comprehensive Plan. Since that time the CPUC has discussed, reviewed, and identified priorities for recommended policy considerations to a Plan for the City of Leander.
A vision for the community was discussed and considered at length all within a context of today and a distant future. The vision was fashioned from the places and experience of the participants. Community pride, beautiful places and events, education, family and friends, opportunity to grow and be successful, diversity, safety and security, and others, became the fabric of the updated plan.
The recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan reflect the discussions and efforts to date.
