The success of the Town's General Plan Update depends on your participation! We truly look forward to hearing from you!
A general plan guide’s the Town Council and staff in making decisions as the town continues to grow and experience change. It is the foundation used to establish zoning regulations, develop our Strategic Plan, create Capital Improvements Plans, amend the Town Code, and can be used as support to solicit grant funding.
Arizona law requires the General Plan be updated every ten years. The last General Plan was adopted in 2010, so it now needs updating. The Plan must include elements (chapters) for Land Use, Circulation, Open Space, Growth Areas, Environmental Planning, Cost of Development, and Water Resources. Additional elements may be included if public dialogue directs a need, such as Economic Development and Housing.
Once the General Plan is adopted by Council, it will go on the 2020 General Election Ballot to be ratified by the voters. The General Plan provides the goals, objectives and policies for future actions of our town:
The draft General Plan is available for review using the link below. A public open house to learn about the draft Plan and provide comments is scheduled for Wednesday, November 20 starting at 6:00 pm in the Fountain Hills Community Center. In the meantime, you may email comments, questions, and suggestions to Town staff.
