Background and Purpose

The City of Trenton has begun to update its comprehensive plan, and we need your input!  Over the next twelve months, the community members will shape the future of Trenton by participating in a series of public workshops, events and surveys.  Your input will guide the development of policies and goals that impact all aspects of Trenton, including the future growth of the city, downtown redevelopment, streets and neighborhood appearance, and how parks should be redeveloped and programmed.

What is a comprehensive plan? 
The comprehensive plan helps guide the development of the city for the next 20 - 25 years. The plan will shape many future aspects of the community, including well-designed parks, neighborhoods and business districts. Most importantly, the plan reflects a vision for the city set by community members like YOU!
Why are comprehensive plans important? 
 A comprehensive plan establishes goals and direction for a community that the city and other community organizations or businesses can use in making decisions that advance the vision set by the whole community.  

The comprehensive plan:
  • Outlines a vision and set of goals designed to address the needs identified by the community.
  • Provides an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to establish, shape and guide the priorities of the community.
  • Establishes a vision for future development and redevelopment opportunities that will positively impact the quality of life within the community.
  • Outlines a series of steps and actions the community can undertake to implement the vision developed through the comprehensive planning process.
