The City of Cañon City is excited to announce the kick-off of the planning process to update the City’s comprehensive plan and land use and development codes. Picture Cañon City 2040 will serve as the City’s official guide for land use and development for the next 20 years. Informed by community consensus, community vision, existing conditions, and future potentials, the comprehensive plan will serve as a road map into the future by guiding policy decisions and helping the community achieve its long-term objectives. The kick-off begins with a joint meeting between the City Council and the Planning Commission on Wednesday, July 8, 2020.
The comprehensive plan will address a variety of topics, including land use and development, transportation (including bike and pedestrian mobility), community facilities and utilities, housing and neighborhoods, economic development, recreation and tourism, environment and sustainability, resiliency, growth and annexation, cultural and historical resources, and community character.
When completed, Picture Cañon City 2040 will be the product of the community, with a vision and recommendations guided by valuable input received from residents, business owners, community leaders, and other stakeholders.
Over the next year, residents should stay active and aware of the project as it progresses by tracking it through the project website at picturecanoncity2040.com. The City and project team look forward to working with the community in crafting a great plan for Cañon City!
