Envision Garland

Envision Garland 2030 Comprehensive Plan, a citywide effort addressing matters that affect the community's future, outlines a strategic plan that is grounded in market and economic reality.  Among the key issues facing Garland are the challenges of reaching "build out" - that is, reaching the point of having no undeveloped land in the city; a changing population composition (demographics); and a need to revitalize existing residential and business areas within the city.

The Envision Garland 2030 Comprehensive Plan was unanimously adopted by the City Council on March 20, 2012.  The plan serves as the guiding policy document for long-range planning within Garland, focusing on issues related to land use, economic development, housing and neighborhoods, transportation and infrastructure, and community design.
