General Plan to be discussed Tuesday by Apache Junction planning commission

Posted

The proposed legendary landscapes and lifestyles section of the 2020-50 Apache Junction General Plan will be discussed at the Jan. 28 meeting of the planning and zoning commission.

The 7 p.m. meeting is at the City Council Chambers, 300 E. Superstition Blvd.

The term “general plan” describes a general, comprehensive, long-range statement of goals, and related policies to guide future growth and development within a community, according to the plan.

The General Plan is comprehensive because it seeks to coordinate all of the interrelated systems and land uses within the City of Apache Junction. While the plan guides the physical development, it also deals indirectly with social and political issues. The General Plan is not intended to be a rigid or static document, nor meant to replace the zoning ordinance, the plan states.

State law requires that municipalities with more than 2,500 residents shall update their respective general plan every 10 years.
