Comprehensive Plan

The City of Waxahachie first drafted a single document Comprehensive Plan in 1973. The plan was subsequently updated in 1983, 1995, 2007, and 2016. The Comprehensive Plan is the City’s blueprint for the long-range development of the community and provides both a framework and the policy context within which to make decisions relating to land use and future development.
The 2016 Comprehensive Plan Addendum updates and adds new chapters to the 2007 Comprehensive Plan, including the Future Land Use Plan and Transportation Plan, and all the maps, which are intended to be used as a guide and adopted by City Council as public policy. The 2016 Addendum together with the non-updated sections of the 2007 Comp Plan are intended to constitute the complete Comprehensive Plan of the City, for all matters relating to long-range guidance relative to zoning decisions, land subdivision, thoroughfare construction, park and recreation planning, and growth management.
