DRAFT 2015-2035 Comprehensive Plan

Evansville, Land Use

Future Land Use 2035 Map

The Comprehensive Plan is developed and adopted by the community as the guide for land use decisions including all activities related to future development. This plan update has incorporated numerous recommendations and guidance from both recent local planning efforts and current national planning concepts. The Area Plan Commission is proud to present this Draft, and has done its part so far in this planning process. Now we need your input on whether the land use pattern recommended for the future and the strategies in the action plans in this document will provide the direction that our community needs going forward. Once we arrive at a final Plan, we will then need your help to implement it.

Thanks for your service to our community, for your interest in planning, and for your input and guidance. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.


2004-2025 Comprehensive Plan

“We envision Evansville and Vanderburgh County as a prominent regional center that offers prosperity, growth, and a quality place to live, learn, work, invest and visit.”

This Vision Statement is supported by designating appropriate areas for the development of specific land uses, and incorporating a series of action plans. The action plans focus on improving the quality of life through the establishment of statements that embody the community’s long-range goals, objectives and policies concerning growth and the strategies to implement those statements. Citizen involvement in formulating these land use policies is essential for the Plan to be an accurate expression of the community’s vision and desires for the future.    2004-2025 Comprehensive Plan.pdf
