​Comprehensive Plan Rewrite (2018 - 2019)

The City is beginning a major rewrite of the Thornton Comprehensive Plan. The City currently uses the 2012 Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan provides a vision of what Thornton can be in the future for all aspects ranging from transportation to housing choices and from recreational amenities to employment opportunities. The Comprehensive Plan serves as a long-range guiding document for the City's systems and services and allows for coordination with all of the detailed plans and implementation programs in which the City engages.  

The Comprehensive Plan rewrite will be ongoing throughout 2018 and 2019 and will have two major phases:

  • Phase I: Comprehensive Plan Visioning Process - In this phase, the community will be involved in identifying the core values, vision and goals for Thornton's future.

What do you think the future of Thornton should look like?

Phase II: Comprehensive Plan Technical Document Update - The rewrite of Thornton's Comprehensive Plan document will be the focus of Phase II. This phase will incorporate the outcomes of the visioning process.
