The City of Rawlins Comprehensive Master Plan -
A Vision for the Future
The City of Rawlins Comprehensive Master Plan is the primary public document to help decision-makers evaluate development proposals and lead growth toward a shared vision. The comprehensive plan typically looks at the entire community and future expansion areas, identifying land uses (residential, commercial, manufacturing, parks, etc.) and other elements that make up the community. The general plan vision is established through public participation, which should be dynamic and informative. The plan typically has a life of 5 to 10 years, yet looks 20 or more years forward in order to anticipate long term change.
Updating the City of Rawlins Comprehensive Master Plan represents a rare opportunity for the community to reflect on the past and dream about the future. The planning process identifies what works and what needs to be improved, and the resulting plan will change and morph throughout this process, eventually representing a preferred plan for the future. Once the Comprehensive Master Plan has been finalized and adopted, implementation tools such as the zoning ordinance and site development guidelines will need to be updated to help meet the future community vision contained in the plan.
Updating the City of Rawlins Comprehensive Master Plan
The existing Comprehensive Master Plan, which was originally adopted in 1981 and updated in 1999, no longer reflects the direction that the community is headed, and has become outdated. The updated plan will address the changes that have taken place while outlining a new vision that will ensure the community develops in an efficient and economic manner in the future. The process addresses the impacts of continued energy development head on, while identifying new directions of growth and patterns of change. It will achieve this in part by engaging the citizens of Rawlins in a community visioning process, helping to make the comprehensive plan become the new “Blueprint for the City’s future.” The process will build upon the good work that has already been done, interpret what is heard and discovered, and transform the resulting information into a clear path for the future of the City.The final result will be a new Comprehensive Master Plan that acknowledges the opportunities of future growth, the impacts of energy development, and the need to implement projects according to a holistic vision.
