Comprehensive Plan & Land Use Code Update

The Town is updating its Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Code to identify and articulate the community vision and objectives that will set the road map for the Town’s growth from now into 2040.​ For more information on this process and timeline, see the bottom of this page.

Get involved!

​Listening to and responding to you, the Town's residents, is key to enhancing this planning effort. For this reason, as illustrated on the project timeline further below, there will be many opportunities for you to get involved. Your involvement means that the Town's policies and programs are shaped 'by you' and 'for you'.​​​​

Phase 2 Quick Poll Series

Through July and August, expect to see social media posts inviting you to participate in four quick polls (2-4 minutes each) about opportunities for our Downtown, Commercial Areas, and Water Future as well as about our community vision and pillars. Should you want to take the polls at your own pace, click on their respective links below.

Opportunities for Downtown | Opportunities for Commercial Areas | Opportunities for our Water Future | and Review our Community Vision and Pillars

Thank You to all of you who have participated so far. As you'll see in a Phase 1 Summary document we hope to share by mid August, we have captured over 300 opinions. Below is a word cloud illustrating what our community values most about Wellington.

Understanding the Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Code Update process

This planning process will start with a Comprehensive Plan (the Plan) looking at all facets of the community, including but not limited to: managing growth; land use and development patterns; major infrastructure and facilities planning; attraction of commercial development (including development and redevelopment downtown); resource allocation (including looking at recommendations to maximize water supply); transportation; park and open space management; and regional coordination.

​​The Land Use Code will serve as the regulatory tool to implement the principles and policies identified in the Comprehensive Plan. Once finalized, the two components of this planning effort will enable the Town’s governing bodies in their decision-making, to move policy and development forward in a purposeful and productive way.​
