The Comprehensive Plan serves as a policy guide for the development of a city, establishing the legal foundation for enactment and systematic application of zoning, subdivision regulations and other development regulations. It is an effective instrument for budgeting local development funds, coordinating development, and making decisions based upon well-researched and well-conceived criteria.
Grand Prairie's Comprehensive Plan is intended as a 20-year plan that will guide the City's growth and development. As new data becomes available and new trends emerge, they will need to be incorporated into the plan making it a strategic guide.
