What is a neighborhood plan?
A neighborhood plan is a tool to make your neighborhood the best place it can be. It is a document that outlines a community’s vision, values and priorities within an area of the city. It represents all the groups that contribute to the neighborhood. It can help ensure that things you treasure are maintained and direct changes you would like to see in your area.
By preparing a plan, your neighborhood will:
- Identify and prioritize projects that would improve the community and understand how those projects can be implemented.
- Request that appropriate priority projects are considered for funding in the City’s Capital Improvements Plan
- Propose changes to City policies affecting your area, such as zoning of specific properties, or design guidelines
- Become eligible for special City funding or other private sector or government grants
