Comprehensive planning is an attempt to establish guidelines for the future growth of a community. The term 'comprehensive' means exactly what it says. It should be a comprehensive or all-inclusive approach at addressing the issue of the future growth of a community.
A comprehensive plan is the document that is the final product from the efforts of this process. The document is official in nature, meaning that some form of local government should adopt it into local law. The document should then be used as a policy guide to decisions about the development of the community.
The elements of a comprehensive plan can vary from community to community. In most cases though, the plan consists of a study of existing conditions and a discussion of future trends, goals, and objectives. Land-use patterns, housing conditions, population, roadways, and other infrastructure are usually the principle elements that are studied.
In some cases, educational facilities along with recreation and other government facilities are reviewed. Social service facilities can also be discussed. Comprehensive plans deal with the land-use related issues relevant to each of these topics.†
