Metropolitan Development Blueprint

"Blueprint" is the name given to our metro-wide planning process which seeks two major outcomes. First, it is an effort to accomplish 4 major visions from a visioning process completed in early 1990. The primary visions are:

  • To provide more livable compact communities within our metro region
  • To frame our communities with open spaces, farmlands and greenways
  • To provide sufficient regional business and employment centers and
  • To connect communities and centers with efficient multi-modal transportation.

The Blueprint name has also been applied to GVMC's ongoing efforts to create a regional planning process which coordinates local growth and land use policies with regional management of metro-wide infrastructure and services such as streets, sewer, water, transit, stormwater, schools, etc.

A Blueprint Committee has been established to oversee the development and use of the Blueprint II Framework for Regional Development.
