A POCD is a municipal guide for managing growth and conserving resources. As required by State statutes, the City’s Planning Commission is responsible for updating the POCD every ten years. The POCD was last updated in 2013. The POCD will address multiple issues related to stewardship of the City and provides a foundation for City policy, capital investment, and zoning regulations.
