UPCOMING PUBLIC HEARING
City Council Hearing
Tempe City Hall - Council Chambers
31 E. Fifth Street
One generation plants trees, the next enjoys the shade. As with the Chinese proverb, through the General Plan process, the City of Tempe thinks to the next generations to ensure the city's sustainable growth, economic prosperity and continual progress.
The General Plan is the overarching policy document for the City of Tempe. It holds 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.
Why are we doing this?
Arizona state statutes require each city to adopt a comprehensive, long-range General plan to guide the physical development of the community. The current General Plan 2030 is effective for up to ten years from the date the plan was initially adopted (December 2003) and ratified by voters (March 2004). On or before the tenth anniversary of the plan’s most recent adoption, the city is required to either re-adopt the existing plan or adopt a new General Plan and take the document back to the ballot for public ratification by majority affirmative vote.
