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?

  • 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.
