A City’s Comprehensive Plan contains the long-range vision that functions as a guide for important municipal policy decisions. Comprehensive Plans are typically updated every 10 to 15 years. The City of Swan Valley’s current Comprehensive Plan was adopted in the early 2006 changes over the past 12 years prompted the City Council to start working to update the plan. 

Recognizing that the City of Swan Valley is a Rural Community and has limited resources we ask that you give us good information to provide vital information for the decision maker of the city.

What does RURAL mean? Rural means country or countryside. People who live in rural communities live in the country.
