Planning & Zoning Comprehensive Plan

Edinburg Gateway Plan:
The City's 20 Year Vision for Growth and Development
A committee comprised of city leaders and citizens, under the guidance of Lane Kendig, Inc., have spent the past year working on the Gateway Plan-An Agenda for 2025. This plan was adopted by the City Council on October 4, 2005. The Gateway Plan is intended to provide direction to City leaders, developers, investors and residents with regards to land use, community character, growth and development, transportation, economic growth and utilities. In addition to the Gateway Plan, the Edinburg Parks and Recreation Master Plan was developed to establish the communities need for improving the park system and facilitating park development. Both the Gateway Plan and the Edinburg Parks and Recreation Master Plan will replace the city’s current Comprehensive Plan. With the population growth anticipated to double in the next 20 years, the plan will ultimately provide a “gateway” to the future and create a community that the citizens will want to call home.
