The City of Farmington is updating its 2002 Comprehensive Plan to reflect the City’s transformation from an economy traditionally reliant on oil, gas, and coal extraction, to one that is much more diverse. Additionally, many of the recommended programs, projects, and actions were implemented in the past 16 years! This new economic future is envisioned to be based on outdoor recreation, tourism, becoming a retirement destination, manufacturing, education, and health services. The updated Comprehensive Plan will provide recommendations to assist Farmington’s governing bodies in decision-making, and to move policy and development forward in an intentional and productive way that is conducive to transforming Farmington into a healthy and sustainable economy for the future.
The Comprehensive Plan will be an adopted document to guide development within the City, and will provide vision, goals, objectives, and actions necessary to direct the City’s progress over the next 20 years. The Plan will assess opportunities and challenges facing the City and set priorities for implementation outlining specific actions and practical results.
