Planning Update


Project Summary

The City of Grand Prairie is beginning an eleven-month process to update two key long-range planning documents; the Master Transportation Plan (MTP) and the 2010 Comprehensive Plan. These documents serve as guides, used by City staff and elected officials, to make important daily and long-term decisions with regards to land use, public policy, transportation, and funding. The main goals of this planning update are to:

  • Update the Master Transportation Plan to identify the location, alignment, and preservation of needed right-of-way to support future mobility needs and investments;
  • Update the Comprehensive Plan to reflect the City’s changing social and economic characteristics, long-range vision, and needs; and
  • Provide a focused assessment and recommendations for five key sub-areas through the City.

Why do these plans need to be updated?

The conditions, vision, and desires of a community are always changing. This is especially true of growing cities like Grand Prairie. The more current a City’s long-range documents are, the better equipped the City is to make informed decisions that impact all members of the community.

Ideas and Comments

Between June 2017 and September 2017, there will be a series of meetings with a Steering Committee of stakeholders, input gatherings at community events, and an online survey to collect first-hand input that will ultimately be used to identify the community’s needs and influence plan recommendations. Please visit this page periodically throughout the planning process for up-to-date information (such as meeting information, public announcements, downloadable documents/presentations and the community survey, among other things) and learn how you can participate in planning your City's future.
