Area Plans

Area Plans serve as a guide for making future decisions concerning land use, zoning, transportation improvements, open space, and other capital improvements.  They also serve to identify opportunities for commercial revitalization, economic development, and mixed-use development.

Citizens in Concord play a key role in developing these types of plans. By participating in the planning process, citizens are able to channel neighborhood insights and other suggestions to City planners who can incorporate those ideas into area plans. Citizens and community committee members can participate in the planning process through public forums, surveys, and focus groups.  


Area Plans can also lead to better urban design at the local level.  Area plans can improve the design and management of public space (i.e. the 'public environment', 'public realm' or 'public domain'), and the way public places are experienced and used. Public space includes all spaces used freely on a day-to-day basis by the general public, such as streets, plazas, parks, and public infrastructure.
