Home » Why Plan?

The planning process brings together all members of the community to learn, listen, and collaborate with one another in order to create a clear and consistent community-wide vision. The final plan document is a reflection of that effort and serves as a roadmap to guide decision-making toward objectives identified during the planning process. 

The primary objectives of the City of Auburn Comprehensive Plan are to:

  • Create a unifying vision for future growth and development;

  • Fulfill the State of Indiana’s comprehensive plan requirements,

  • Work toward the standards in AARP’s Livable Communities Index;

  • Engage diverse segments of the population in meaningful ways;

  • Establish clear guidance for decision makers;

  • Development implementation strategies; and

  • Develop a user-friendly, functional document.
