THE PLAN

One generation plants trees, the next enjoys the shade. As with the Chinese proverb, through the General Plan process, the City of Tempe thinks to the next generations to ensure the city's sustainable growth, economic prosperity and continual progress.

The General Plan is the overarching policy document for the City of Tempe. It holds the community’s vision for the future and is an expression of how the community wants to grow and change over the next 30 years.  

 

THE PURPOSE

Arizona state statutes require each city to adopt a comprehensive, long-range General Plan to guide the physical development of the community. The current General Plan 2030 is effective for up to ten years from the date the plan was initially adopted (December 2003) and ratified by voters (March 2004). On or before the tenth anniversary of the plan’s most recent adoption, the city is required to either re-adopt the existing plan or adopt a new General Plan and take the document back to the ballot for public ratification by majority affirmative vote. 

 

THE NEXT STEP - VOTER RATIFICATION OF ADOPTED PLAN

On 12 December 2013, Tempe City Council adopted General Plan 2040. The public vote to legally ratify General Plan 2040 will occur in the Tempe Special Election on Tuesday, 20 May 2014. For addition election information including voter registration, polling locations and frequently asked questions, please visit the City Clerk's Election Information.
