Welcome to the 2019 Update to Thornton’s Comprehensive Plan!
The City is in the midst of a major rewrite of the 2012 Thornton Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan provides a vision of what Thornton can be in the future and covers a wide variety of topics that include housing, transportation, recreational amenities, and employment opportunities. The Comprehensive Plan serves as a guiding document for the City’s systems that coordinates other more detailed plans and implementation programs.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
2018-2019 Comprehensive Plan Update:
The Comprehensive Plan rewrite will be ongoing throughout 2018 and 2019 and will have two major phases:
- Phase I: (completed December 2018) Comprehensive Plan Visioning Process – In this phase, the community will be involved in identifying the core values, vision, and goals for Thornton’s future.
- Phase II: (underway) Comprehensive Plan Technical Document Update – The rewrite of Thornton’s Comprehensive Plan document will be the focus of Phase II. This phase will incorporate the outcomes of the visioning process.
