The adoption of City Plan and the Transportation Master Plan is the first step to implementation. Continuing action to implement these plans is necessary in order for them to have a lasting impact. The Action Plan describes how the principles, policies, and actions in City Plan should be carried out.
City Plan is called upon to address a range of diverse, sometimes divergent, public interests. It addresses a host of concerns within a consistent, well-integrated policy framework. In implementing this plan, it is the task of staff, the Planning and Zoning Board, and City Council to make policy determinations in a manner that promotes the overall goals of the plan and the public welfare, in accordance with existing resources, staffing, and priorities. Policy and program implementation require reasonable and thoughtful consideration of other plan policies. Such implementation decisions come up on a case-by-case basis as City Council, the Planning and Zoning Board, City staff, and others work to effectively implement the entire plan.
