Comprehensive Plan Update
City of Denton
The City of Denton is seeking proposals from qualified Planning Consultants to conduct necessary research for the development of appropriate documentation for a COMPREHENSIVE PLAN EVALUATION REPORT AND UPDATE TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN to be accepted and adopted by the City.
The purpose of Comprehensive Planning is to monitor and evaluate community characteristics related to development, provisions of services, environmental protection, and other governmental activities. The Comprehensive Plan sets goals, policies, and actions to manage growth, promote reinvestment, and improve the quality of life for Denton residents. Planning is a continuous and ongoing process. The City of Denton periodically reviews their Comprehensive Plan to ensure that it appropriately reflects current and anticipated conditions, embodies a community vision, targets major issues that the City must address in both the short- and long-term, complies with state statutes and rules, and is consistent with state and regional policy plans.
The current comprehensive plan, Denton Plan 2030, was adopted in January 2015. Best practice is to update a comprehensive plan (which includes the Future Land Use Map) at least every 5 to 7 years to avoid becoming outdated and to accommodate changes or unforeseen circumstances.
