Comprehensive Plan Update
Building a Better Benbrook
The Comprehensive Plan is an official document that serves as Benbrook’s roadmap for future land development. The plan is being updated to address usage of vacant lands. The City is asking for and accepting public comment through December 12, 2019.
As part of the update process, the City held an open house on Tuesday, November 12th. Citizens had an opportunity to review six stations addressing different elements of the plan. Below is a summary of each station with links (the title of each station) to the information provided at the Open House. Please provide your comments on the form at the end of this page.
Station 1: Why Plan?
A plan provides guidance for the City’s decision-making. It also is used to establish goals and strategies to help us fulfill the community’s vision for Benbrook. As a prominent management consultant once wrote, "Planning is bringing the future into the present, so you can do something about it now."
Station 2: Our Vision
Station 3: Thoroughfare and Trails Plans
Station 4: Future Land Use
Station 5: Downtown
Station 6: Help Prioritize (Results)
Attendees of the open house also participated in a prioritization exercise. They were given five beans, representing tax dollars, and challenged to choose which of ten City services they would fund. Participants found the exercise was a creative way to demonstrate the allocation of limited resources.
