The Queen Creek General Plan serves as the town’s road map to guide development, manage growth and conserve natural resources, according to a release.

The General Plan identifies goals and policies, and integrates plans related to land use, growth area, transportation, parks, trails and open space, environmental planning, water resources and economic development.

The General Plan is required to be updated every 10 years, according to the release.

Combining input from the community over the past year and integrating the town’s planning documents, the General Plan was updated and approved by town council. To become effective, the community must ratify, or approve the General Plan update.
