The Long Range Planning Division uses the Comprehensive Plan to guide planning, land use code decisions, development management, and informational/resource services that are delivered to residents, businesses, the development community, decision-making bodies, and neighborhood partners.
Advance Arvada is the City's large-scale effort to modernize the Land Development Code (LDC) and create sub-area plans for key economic development areas throughout the community in order to maintain a sustainable and resilient place to live, work, and play. A number of sub-area planning efforts are currently underway, with additional plans proposed for development over the next several years.
Plan Arvada includes City Plans such as: City Council Strategic Plan, Arvada Parks System Master Plan, Blunn/Pioneer Master Plan, Capital Improvement Plan, Comprehensive Plan, Olde Town Design Plan, Sustain Arvada Plan, Olde Town Parking and Transportation Demand Plan, Arvada Transit Framework Plan, and the Arvada Cultural Master Plan
The 2014 Comprehensive Plan articulates the community's shared values and vision. Goals and policies help guide development and investment decisions that influence the quality of life in Arvada. The Plan establishes the City's land use pattern, sets the stage for development regulations and standards, and guides the City in funding programs and capital investments by anticipating future tax revenue. The Plan was prepared to conform to the requirements in the Colorado Revised Statues.
