Comprehensive Planning

The way each person feels about the places where they live and work can affect overall health and well-being. Safe, attractive, and welcoming neighborhoods and gathering places make life better for everyone living in or near them, and a network of great corridors and neighborhoods makes our entire city a better place to be. 

Specific Plans
Exceptional cities, and the great neighborhoods within them, don’t just happen. Cities constantly grow and change, and we can ensure that these changes are positive through the plans we make today. 

The Flagstaff Regional Plan provides guidance for preservation and growth in the coming years, and Specific Plans offer guidance on a more focused level by providing a means to:


  • Identify, preserve, and build on the positive qualities of different places;

  • Acknowledge and identify solutions for existing problems; and

  • Set goals and priorities that will shape the future of the area in the years to come.


A Specific Plan is a City Council-adopted document that includes goals, policies, a conceptual plan, and desired improvement projects that help better define and shape the character of an existing neighborhood, corridor, or activity center.
