Comprehensive Plan Document
The Plan is a guide to direct future growth and development. Unlike zoning, the Plan is not regulatory in nature, but rather a tool and guide used by the Planning Commission and Board of Directors as they consider future decisions regarding zoning and development. The Plan is flexible and lays out broad goals and objectives for the City for the next 20 years.
The Texarkana, AR Comprehensive Plan Update will include several other elements such as the written plan document, demographics of the City, Infill and Redevelopment Areas, Implementation Plan, and other tools that help the Planning Commission and Board of Directors make decisions for the future of development within the City. The Plan is generally long-range and designed to envision the next 20 years of growth within the City.
