​Master & Strategic Plans

Master plans serve as more detailed, functional documents designed to supplement specific topics addressed in the Thornton Comprehensive Plan such as transportation, housing, or parks and open space.  

Policy Planning partners with other City departments to prepare these plans by helping to set goals and long-term policy, and providing information such as population estimates and future land use designations. These plans seek to articulate the goals set by the Comprehensive Plan and provide more detailed implementation strategies and responsibilities.

Master plans are approved by City Council and are generally reviewed, revised, and/or rewritten about every 5 years.
