A Comprehensive Plan offers long-term guidance for community growth, real estate development, and physical improvements within a municipality. The document is reflective of the local community, utilizing community outreach to identify a vision for the future supported by key stakeholders. Based on the foundational analysis, the Comprehensive Plan is able to identify tangible actions that can be enacted to achieve this vision.
At its most basic, Crestwood’s Comprehensive Plan is a "how-to" guide, assisting with land use patterns, business growth, mobility and accessibility, maintenance of community facilities, and management of parks and recreational opportunities. Opportunities were offered throughout the planning process for residents to voice their opinions, provide feedback, and share ideas. Both in-person events and online tools were employed throughout the planning process to gather invaluable public opinion, ensuring the Comprehensive Plan is representative of the community it serves.
The Day-to-Day use of the Crestwood Comprehensive Plan will be primarily as a decision-support tool for the Board of Alderman, Planning and Zoning Commission, and City Staff. The document acts as a guide for private investment within the community and can be utilized to review and evaluate future development. The vision established within the Comprehensive Plan will provide direction, not only for the City itself but for the numerous stakeholders who will help to shape Crestwood in the future. In addition, the Plan will have a direct role in obtaining desired grants and funding as well as serving as a promotional tool for the community and its unique assets.
