Tempe residents are being asked to weigh in on the city’s future in a new citywide survey, which is set to close July 1.
The Tempe Tomorrow survey asks residents what the future of Tempe should look and feel like. The city wants to know what kinds of open spaces are most important to each person, among other things, to enhance the city’s new general plan. The survey can be found at tempe.gov/forum.
The general plan is the overarching policy document for the City of Tempe. It reflects the community’s vision for the future, and is an expression of how the community wants to grow and change over the next 30 years.
The plan guides how Tempe plans for development, land use, transportation, mass transit, economic development, historic preservation, neighborhood enhancement, public art, cultural amenities, human services, recreation, and open space. It also guides the City of Tempe in planning for sustainability, climate change, environmental improvements, and in achieving a good quality of life and community well-being.
All Arizona cities are required to update their general plans every 10 years. These plans are created in concert with residents, area businesses and other interested people. Tempe Tomorrow: GP 2050 is Tempe's effort to create a new general plan that is forward-thinking, sustainable, achievable and inclusive of everyone in the community.
