The City of Hurricane is undertaking an update to the existing City General Plan to address the significant changes in population, rates of growth, economic condition, and demographics that have occurred since it was first adopted in 1999 and updated in 2011. In addition to growth and land use pressures, Hurricane’s new General Plan will address open space and trails; heritage and cultural resources; economic opportunities; moderate income housing; and outdoor resources.

What is a General Plan?

A General Plan is the primary planning document for the community. It will serve as a long-term, strategic plan with a guiding vision built by the community and strategies to support that vision. Once adopted, a General Plan will shape decisions related to new development, redevelopment, city programs, and services; focusing on enhancing the City’s values and high quality of life.

Why does it matter to residents?

The plan will identify community character elements and locations for future housing, parks, trails, community facilities, and more.

Why does it matter to business and property owners?

The plan will include land use recommendations and development policies.

Why does it matter to City leaders?

The plan will provide direction on the topics of development, policies, programs, and services provided by the City.

Why does it matter to decision-makers?

The plan will give guidance on budget, timing for capital improvements, and review of development proposals.

Why update the plan?

Planning theory, particularly for fast growing communities like Hurricane, has advanced since the last General Plan update was last updated. Because Hurricane has changed and continues to change, it is critical to identify the attributes and character of the City that residents and businesses value most.

This new General Plan will provide the vision and the tools to anticipate and guide change in ways that preserve the character of Hurricane, and to ensure quality development, effective multi-modal transportation, and economic development, while protecting the community’s heritage and sensitive landscapes.
