Developing a general/comprehensive plan that sets good and lasting policy for planners and elected officials, while also being valuable and meaningful to the public and private sector, is extremely challenging. As a result, a planning process that provides an inclusive, wide-ranging, and modern public participation is essential. Arizona state law requires that all cities, town, and counties revise their general or comprehensive plans by 2015. The City of Tucson’s general plan, Plan Tucson, is concluding its 2-year planning process and will be enlisting the document on this November’s election ballot. Pima County is formally kicking off its public process for its plan, Pima Prospers. At this intimate brown bag, our colleagues from the City and County will share their insights on general and comprehensive plan development as well as answer any questions. Planners will learn about the public involvement processes used for the plans, the incorporation of sustainability concepts into the plans, and the City of Tucson's lessons learned in taking their plan through the public hearing process.
