Plan Tucson Needs Your Feedback

Published on May 21, 2024


Plan Tucson invites all community members to participate in the following activities: the Future Growth Scenario Map, Draft Policies Survey, and the Developmental Guidelines Survey. These are crucial steps in updating the City’s General Plan. This long-range policy document is central to defining the future of Tucson, addressing vital areas such as housing, transportation, climate action, and growth.

Future Growth Scenario Map

Tucson has a rich history, but we must evolve to meet the needs of our developing community. As our city continues to grow, we must balance resources while meeting our housing demands. The Plan Tucson team has drafted the Future Growth Scenario Map using the community's ideas and extensive city data. We encourage the community to explore the draft scenario mapping tool and contribute your thoughts and ideas at the link below. Your input is crucial in shaping the future of our city.

Draft Policies

During Phase 2 of the Plan Tucson update, working groups and community forums helped the Plan Tucson team get insight from our community on goals and how we could accomplish them. Using feedback from the community, the Plan Tucson team presented goals and suggested pathways to achieve those goals during Fall 2023 and Spring 2024. The team matched these inputs to policies from Plan Tucson 2013 and other plans adopted in the City over the last ten years. These policies were presented and discussed in thematic-based working groups. Feedback from working groups and community forums was used to complete a round of revisions. There are 20 draft goals, and each draft goal has a survey asking for feedback on how well the current draft of policies will achieve the goal. You can provide feedback on as many goals as you'd like by clicking on the button below. The Plan Tucson team will use this feedback to continue revising the policies included in the plan's initial draft.

Developmental Guidelines

Each Building Block presented on the Future Growth Scenario Map includes a set of Developmental Guidelines that are used by planners in the City's entitlements team when a proposed rezoning occurs. The development guidelines give technical specifics on what to look for in a rezoning application, including how the proposed rezoning would integrate into the surrounding areas, transportation concerns, and much more. The surveys are geared to gather your input on the draft guidelines to make sure the character of each building block reflects the community's vision. Developmental Guidelines Virtual Office Hours are being hosted to better explain how to provide feedback on the Developmental Guidelines and how they help shape Tucson. Please click on the desired date and time to join the virtual meeting. 5/28, 8 a.m. -10 a.m. 5/30, 12 p.m. -1:30 p.m. 5/31 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Developmental Guidelines Survey

The Future Growth Scenario Map Survey, the Draft Policy Surveys, and the Developmental Guidelines Feedback Survey all close on June 2, 2024. The team will have an initial draft of the general plan ready for public review this fall.
