It is expected the consultant utilize the city's existing plan and other long-term planning documents as the beginning point. The revitalized plan will provide vision, goals, objectives, and polices to guide the city's development and redevelopment. The plan will guide the Governing Body, Planning Commission, various advisory boards, staff, developers, property owners, and residents on the appropriate growth and redevelopment for Shawnee.
The Project will integrate all aspects of development including demographics, land use recommendations, public facilities, transportation, environmental, and trends.

The City's Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 1994 and has had sections edited and updated sporadically since adoption. An all-inclusive revitalization to this plan is needed. It is the intent of the City that the final document will be innovative, informative, and interactive. City staff completed initial brainstorming and discussed several examples of elements that should be included within the Project.
