The City of Monroe is now accepting “Citizen-Initiated” requests to amend the City of Monroe 2015-2035 Comprehensive Plan. The amendments will be considered as part of the City’s 2021-2022 Plan amendment cycle. The deadline for submitting Comprehensive Plan amendment requests for this amendment cycle is 5:00 p.m., Friday, July 30, 2021.

The Vision of the Comprehensive Plan is for its residents to commit in managing change in ways that maintain or improve Monroe’s character. The vision strives to express the wishes of the community at-large. The plan aims to illustrate how Monroe, as a community in transition, is changing from a small rural town into a city of regional significance. 

 The plan evaluates growth and land use changes and represents the primary framework for policy formulation and decision making over time. Goals, policies, and action statements in the Plan provide direction for current and future decision making to implement the Plan. Plan implementation includes the following tools:

  • Housing  
  • Capital Facilities & Utilities 
  • Transportation 
  • Economic Development 
  • Parks, Recreation & Open Space 
  • Shoreline & Natural Environment 

This will be the only opportunity for plan amendment requests to be considered during the 2021-2022 Comprehensive Plan amendment cycle. The 2021-2022 plan amendment cycle is anticipated to conclude with final City Council action before or during July 2022.
