About the General Plan Update

The Queen Creek General Plan serves as the Town's road map to guide development, appropriately manage growth, and effectively conserve natural resources. The General Plan identifies goals and policies, and integrates plans related to land use, growth area, transportation, parks, trails and open space, environmental planning, water resources and economic development.

State law requires communities to prepare and adopt a General Plan every ten years with input from the community. The current General Plan was approved by voters in September 2008. Town staff is now in the process of updating that General Plan to reflect the growth that has occurred since its previous adoption in 2008.

Why Get Involved

The General Plan lays the foundation for facilitating the Town’s growth, and the updated plan will be in place for the next 10 years. Help shape the future of your community!
