The Comprehensive Plan and Unified Development Code updates are off and running. Recent economic and development trends include “green” or “sustainable” development, more compact residential development, “form–based” codes, and cautious investment have created a very different environment within today’s communities.
These economic and development activities give rise to a new approach to Blue Springs' comprehensive planning efforts. Recent national comprehensive planning efforts focus on addressing the need to balance environment, economy, and social issues in a way that makes communities attractive to businesses, residents and visitors. Our goal in updating the comprehensive plan is to bring this approach to our long-range planning efforts.
Similarly the City’s Unified Development Code (UDC) includes zoning and design requirements that need to be updated in conjunction with the Comprehensive Plan.
Through this process, we plan to enhance the clarity of our codes and simplify the development process.
