City of Rockwall seeks residents’ input to address future growth

(ROCKWALL, TX — August 7, 2017) Rockwall’s growth rate has significantly increased over the past two decades. In fact, since the Hometown 2000 Comprehensive Plan was adopted, the city’s population has more than doubled, from 20,528 in 2000 to 41,370 in 2017. In an effort to keep pace with that growth, city leaders have been working recently to update the comprehensive plan. Now they’re seeking input from residents to help determine the city’s goals, policies and overall vision for years to come.

The city council created the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) earlier this year, and the citizen-led group has been working since February to formalize proposed changes. The CPAC has created a website with the changes posted for residents to review and comment. The group is looking for feedback on changes relating to land use, thoroughfare plan, and growth management in areas such as open space, public services, economic development and community character, just to name a few. To access the website and provide input, please click here.

The comprehensive plan is designed to guide the future actions of the community, to direct the city council on policy and expenditure decisions regarding land use and development, as well update the 20-year vision for the city. After input is received, there will be a series of public hearings before the plan is sent to the council for adoption.
