What is a comprehensive plan?

A comprehensive plan is a long-range planning document that guides the growth of a city over time. It serves as a blueprint to guide future development and redevelopment in a community, based on an established framework. It considers existing and future needs and determines actions that the community should pursue to realize the overall vision. Once adopted, city staff and decision-makers use the Comprehensive Plan as a guide for community development. It does not replace zoning regulations, budgets, capital improvement programs, or any other regulatory documents.

How will this plan be used?

The Buda Comprehensive Plan is a tool to guide decisions made by staff, City Council, and the community. When new development proposals are submitted to the City, these groups will use the policy framework established in this plan to determine whether the proposal fits with the community-driven vision. The Implementation chapter contains a table with all of the action initiatives, which are a synthesis of community desires, City government actions, partnerships and leadership roles, studies and expenditures. These actions are to be used for directives and decision making by City staff as well as policy and decision-making by Buda’s elected and appointed officials. The document is flexible and can be amended over time as circumstances warrant. Overall, this comprehensive plan provides a guide for growth and development decisions to ensure that the Buda of the future maintains aspects of the “small town feel” and is a thriving community.
