Comprehensive Plan

The Marion Comprehensive Plan (Adopted July 2010) is the City of Marion's official policy guide for physical improvement and development. The Plan considers not only the current needs and issues within the community, but also presents a plan for guiding new improvements and developments for the next 15 to 20 years.  

The Marion Comprehensive Plan establishes the ground rules for private improvements and developments and provides the framework by which the City can review and evaluate private development proposals. In addition to private improvements the Plan presents a number of public improvements that can help ensure that local dollars are spent effectively.

The City of Marion Comprehensive Plan - Existing Conditions Report (prepared June 2009) was created to show the existing conditions and trends within Marion. The Report was then used as a basis for creating the goals, objectives, recommendations and implementation strategies developed for the Marion Comprehensive Plan.
