The City of Salisbury is working with our community to create a new Comprehensive
Plan for a stronger and smarter future. Forward 2040 will establish a high-level
policy framework to guide planning priorities and decisions over the next 20 years
related to land use, future growth, physical development, and capital improvements.
Importantly, the plan will flow from the People’s vision of how we should work
together, grow wisely, and live out our fundamental values.
Who decides how a city will grow, what form it will take, and how it will function?
A Comprehensive Plan is a document that guides the City’s growth over a twenty (20) year period. It helps determine how the City can sustain-ably, efficiently, and cost effectively provide services, such as water and sewer, emergency services, public transit, as well as improve quality of life.
The first step is to identify a vision – where the community wants to be at the end of the twenty year horizon – which is why obtaining feedback from our neighbors is so important. This feedback will help us craft a vision that truly represents where the City of Salisbury wants to be in 2040.
