Alexandria 2030 - Updating the City's Vision
The City of Alexandria is currently in the process of updating its comprehensive plan and the purpose of this website is to let community residents and stakeholders know what is going on and participate in the update.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A comprehensive plan is a planning tool that evaluates various aspects of the city and establishes a series of policies to help guide future decisions about the physical, economic, environmental, and community service aspects of the city. Comprehensive plans are general in nature and are purposely long-term, recognizing that some visions cannot be achieved immediately but take years to accomplish. This plan is intended to help guide decisions related to Alexandria over the next five to ten years.
Why an Update?
Kentucky state law requires that a community revisit its plan every five years, even if to simply re-adopt the previous vision, in order to maintain tools such as zoning. The last time the city went through a complete overhaul of the plan was in 2004. While the overall vision and goals of that plan have not significantly changed, the city felt that this was a good time to revisit the plan, update data, and generally streamline the document to make it easier to use.
