Comprehensive Plan

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A Comprehensive Plan is a long-range plan intended to guide growth and development of a community or region.  It includes analysis of the community and recommendations for future actions.  The plan is based on public input, planning initiatives, physical characteristics, and social and economic conditions.

Sidney has a long history of planning.  The community prepared the current comprehensive plan in 2010, but was not able to utilize the newest Census data.  The city leadership believes the time is right for a plan update.

What is the purpose of a Comprehensive Plan & why is it important?

The purpose of the plan is to create a shared vision for the future of the City. The plan builds on the City’s heritage of interactive and timely planning for desirable growth and development. This Plan presents an opportunity to demonstrate that residents, businesses and elected officials are committed to working together for the best possible future for our community.

Public participation plays an important role in the planning process.  An interactive public process is part of every update.  The entire community is encouraged to participate in decisions about neighborhoods, land use, downtown revitalization, community services and facilities, infrastructure and economic development.
