The Plan

Vision Statement

The greater Flagstaff community embraces the region's extraordinary cultural and ecological setting on the Colorado Plateau through active stewardship of the natural and built environments. Residents and visitors encourage and advance intellectual, environmental, social, and economic vitality for today's citizens and future generations.

Looking for the Cliff’s Notes? If you have limited time, we recommend looking at Chapter III, Appendix B, and the following maps: Significant Natural Resources, Concentration of Natural Resources, Future Growth Illustration (FMPO scale), Future Growth Illustration (city scale), and the Road Network. You can review all of these maps through the City's interactive web map.
See links below for individual chapters and maps. These are large PDFs and may take a while to download. The entire Plan is available for download here.

STRATEGIES (The strategies were developed by the CAC as suggestions for policy implementation, and are a separate document not included in the ratified plan.)
2014 Orginal Proposed Strategies

When there are frequently asked questions about the Regional Plan that are not clearly stated in the document, the Comprehensicve Planning Manager will issue an interpretation. Over time, interpretations are incorporated into the plan through relevant amendments. the current list of plan interpretations is available here.

Many pages of the Regional Plan changed as a result of multiple amendments. Packets of Replacement Pages are published online annually. The online copy of the Regional Plan is always up to date. Please insert the 2014-2016 replacement packet into your Plan first, if you have a printed copy from 2014. Then, download the 2016-2017 Regional Plan replacement page packet. Then, download the 2018 Replacement Page Packet.
