New Comprehensive Plan on the Horizon for Oak Creek
The City of Oak Creek Department of Community Development is in the process of working with a consultant to update the city's comprehensive plan and zoning code. This update will guide the City in its decision making for the next 20 years.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for the future. It is a community vision that is intended to guide the City for the next 20 years. The Comprehensive Plan will result in a set of policies that direct future growth and development. Additionally, the creation of a Plan can lead to potential strategies that will help effectively guide City leaders with making substantive and thoughtful decisions for the community.
What are the contents of a Comprehensive Plan?
A typical Comprehensive Plan outlines the existing conditions of the City, describes future goals and objectives for development, and includes an action plan on how to achieve these goals and objectives. The Oak Creek Comprehensive Plan update will include plans addressing:
- Land use, Development, and Historic Preservation
- Housing & Residential Areas
- Economic Development & Commercial and Industrial Areas
- Transportation & Infrastructure
- Parks, Trails, and Recreation
- Open Space and Environmental Features
- Community Facilities and Services
- Specific Sub-Areas
Who is involved in creating the Comprehensive Plan?
As the blueprint for the City, it is critical that all of Oak Creek’s stakeholders are involved in the development of the Comprehensive Plan. The City is committed to involving residents, businesses, and workers in the process in order to craft a community vision for Oak Creek’s future. Ultimately, the Comprehensive Plan will be approved by the Plan Commission and the City Council.
