A land use plan guides how, when, and where new growth, redevelopment and preservation should occur in a particular area.

  • General policy guide
  • Provides a set of strategies for achieving specific community goals
  • Does not guarantee that community improvements or zoning changes will occur
  • They are not regulatory or legally binding

 

From 1985-2013, the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency created over 27 land use plans for neighborhoods and communities within its planning boundary.

In 2015, the Agency undertook a Comprehensive Plan Update. The broad goals and recommendations established in this plan set a framework to integrate future community planning under a countywide unified vision.

The Comprehensive Plan delineated 12 areas that would become the new planning areas to guide physical development and create land use and transportation policies. Over time, these Area Plans will replace the historic land use plans.
