Every city and town is required to have a General Plan which is, in short, a document that summarizes the city/town's ideas for future planning. Every citizen received an invite to attend the General Plan Design Charrette last fall. Those in attendance had the chance to express what they would like to see for and in Safford, then those ideas were prioritized by those in attendance and incorporated in to the new General Plan. The draft document may be viewed by clicking the General Plan link below. Anyone wishing to make final comments on the plan may do so at public hearings taking place on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. and/or Monday, November 14, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. in the Safford Library Program Room located at 808 S 7th Avenue, Safford. The Planning & Zoning Commission will make a recommendation at their meeting on October 20 to the Safford City Council during their meeting on November 14.
Thank you to all who have participated in the creation of this updated plan!
