Comprehensive Planning coordinates long-range planning activities for the City of Memphis. Its primary function was the completion of Memphis 3.0, the City’s comprehensive plan to guide land use, development, transportation, and other built environment considerations over the next 20 years. The comprehensive plan is essential to establish an ambitious vision of the future, but ensure clarity and predictability in growth and development patterns and how the city invests. The Memphis 3.0 comprehensive plan was adopted by the Memphis & Shelby County Land Use Control Board and the Memphis City Council in 2019.
Ongoing Comprehensive Planning activities include promoting and facilitating community engagement, supporting high quality community design, comprehensive plan implementation and compliance, small area planning, neighborhood data resource management, and development of special projects.
Comprehensive Planning is a department of the Memphis & Shelby County Division of Planning and Development.
Memphis will be a city that anchors growth on strengths of the core and neighborhoods; a city of greater connectivity and access; a city of opportunity for all. Learn more about us.
