Welcome to the project page for the Eden 2040 Comprehensive Plan project. This page provides background information on the project and most importantly, provides updates on community engagement opportunities. Be sure to check back frequently throughout the project for the latest on how you can participate in the planning process!
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan outlines a city’s vision for its future and policies and recommendations for achieving that vision. It guides land use policy, funding, resource distribution and infrastructure investment decisions for the City of Eden, its staff, and its governing bodies. It is created through an extensive planning process that prioritizes public engagement to capture the shared vision for Eden. The Envision Eden Comprehensive Plan will serve as an update to the 2007 City of Eden Land Development Plan and continue progress toward strategic areas and goals identified in the Positively Eden Strategic Plan.
A Comprehensive Plan includes a Future Land Use Map that describes the intended development pattern in the city, policy recommendations that will help achieve the community’s vision for Eden and recommendations for plans, programs and projects that address citizen priorities. These recommendations will address an array of topics including: development character, housing, transportation, parks and recreation, public facilities, economic development, and more.
