Comprehensive Plan
The Comprehensive Plan will serve as the City's blueprint to guide growth and development for the next 10 to 20 years. City staff and elected officials will use the Plan to align the work of the City around the issues that matter most to the community. City Council adopted the Comprehensive Plan on March 6, 2023.

Previous Planning Efforts
Waxahachie has a long history of comprehensive planning. It is evident through the City's growing population that the City's previous planning efforts have made Waxahachie a desirable place to live. The City of Waxahachie adopted the first Comprehensive Plan in 1974. The City subsequently updated the Plan in 1983, 1995, 2007, 2016, and 2023. The Future Land Use Plan and the Thoroughfare Plan have been critical components of all the previous plans.
