Strategic Regional Issue #25 – Comprehensive Planning

There are few truly comprehensive plans at the local government level which link land use policies with transportation planning and capital budgeting.

Objective

25.Y.  Each local government should have an up-to-date comprehensive plan that links land use, transportation, economic development, public facilities, public health, housing, natural resources, recreation, intergovernmental coordination and capital budgeting.

Policy Recommendations

25.Y.1.  OKI will maintain the Elements of an Effective Local Comprehensive Plan, a model to link transportation, land use, economic development, public facilities, public health, housing, natural systems, recreation, intergovernmental coordination and capital improvements for use by local governments in the region. Local government comprehensive plans should be consistent, as appropriate, with the OKI Elements of an Effective Local Comprehensive Plan, and OKI will provide information and technical assistance to local governments for this purpose. (same as 1.A.1)

25.Y.2.  Local government comprehensive plans should guide the adoption and amendment of local zoning regulations.

25.Y.3.  OKI’s strategic regional policy plan and local government comprehensive plans should consider both the public interest and private property rights.

25.Y.4.  Local governments should assure that adopted comprehensive plans are current by scheduling an update and public review at least once every five years.
