What is a Comprehensive Plan?
The long-range planning program involves the preparation and implementation of the City's Comprehensive Plan. The City is required by State Law to prepare and maintain a comprehensive plan (Local Government Comprehensive Planning and Land Development Regulation Act of 1972). The present Plan was adopted by the Marianna City Commission in 1991 and was last amended in 2013. A comprehensive plan is an official public document adopted by local government as a policy guide to decisions primarily about the physical development of a community. It is comprehensive in terms of the geographic area it applies to and its content. Elements of the Comprehensive Plan include future land use, traffic circulation, housing, infrastructure, conservation, recreation and open space, intergovernmental coordination, capital improvements, public school facilities and concurrency management.
