The City of Delphi has partnered with HWC Engineering to develop the City's first-ever comprehensive plan. A comprehensive plan establishes the community's vision for Delphi's future and outlines how the City will evolve over the next 10-15 years. This plan will be a guidance document that leaders, residents, and business owners can reference as decisions are being made about the future of Delphi.
