Comprehensive Plan 2019

The City of Madeira embarked on the development of the its first ever Comprehensive Plan in the Spring of 2018. The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to review the City's assets in conjunction with input from residents, businesses and other stakeholders to determine the future direction of the community. It is an opportunity for the City to develop a guiding document that can be used for directing and implementing how the City develops and responds to change in the coming years.

The Comprehensive Plan will provide the City with a guiding document to direct future policy decisions, development, and investments. The Comprehensive Plan was developed with a four-step process:

  • Identify Community Vision
  • Assess Existing and Future Conditions
  • Recommendations
  • Implementation
The year-long planning process included a multi-faceted public outreach effort that included a community survey, public forums, outreach opportunities at community events, business interviews, working groups, steering committee, and Planning Commission oversight.

Planning Commission Recommends Draft Plan to City Council

The first draft of the Comprehensive Plan's recommendations were presented to the Planning Commission by the City's consultant, Envision, LLC in February 2019. Planning Commission has spent the past several months reviewing, discussing and editing the draft.  Planning Commission's efforts included holding an additional public meeting to give residents an opportunity to speak about the proposed plan. 

At the June 17, 2019 meeting, Planning Commission voted to recommend the DRAFT COMPREHENSIVE PLAN to City Council.  City Council will review and discuss the contents of the plan through the regular legislative process.
