2022 Plan Tucson Update

The City of Tucson is currently in the process of updating Plan Tucson, the City of Tucson General & Sustainability Plan, which voters adopted in November 2013

In November 2022, Mayor and Council approved the Community Engagement Program to start the process of updating Plan Tucson.

Over the coming years, community members will have the opportunity to develop a 20-year plan for Tucson, reflecting our shared goals and diverse aspirations. The goals and policies spelled out in the next Plan Tucson will be used to guide the City’s investments, programs, policies, and land-use decisions over the next two decades.

During the first phase of community outreach during Spring 2023, Tucson residents will be asked to share their priorities and vision for the future of our City. This is an opportunity for the community to learn about the City’s recent efforts, assess our challenges and needs, and guide Tucson’s long-term direction.

Plan Tucson will be on the ballot for voter approval in November 2025.
