Plan Tucson is the City’s proposed replacement to the current General Plan. Arizona State Law requires municipalities to adopt a new or existing plan once every ten years. The General Plan is a long-term policy document intended to guide decisions affecting elements that shape the City, such as economic development, historic preservation, housing, water and energy resources and transportation and land use.
Upon review by the City’s Planning Commission, Mayor and Council will have the opportunity to refer Plan Tucson to November’s ballot for voter approval. If approved, Plan Tucson will become the City of Tucson’s new General Plan.
