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.

Sustain Arvada (Services & Sustainability)
Sustain Arvada Plan
The Sustain Arvada Plan has two primary components: The Municipal Action Plan and the Community Plan. While both plans strive to achieve a more sustainable community, the Municipal Action Plan, developed in 2010, defined and created a sustainable corporate identity for the City of Arvada. The Community Plan, adopted in 2012, focused on aspects of sustainability that relate to the entire Arvada population.
