GSO2040

We are now shifting from the PLANIT GSO planning process to the draft release of our new Comprehensive Plan, called "GSO2040." You can look at individual sections of the plan using the links below.

Latest News: The Greensboro Planning Board voted unanimously to recommend adoption of GSO2040
after holding a public hearing on May 20.

Next step, City Council will hold a public hearing on June 16
to consider GSO2040's adoption.

Your City. Your Future. Plan it!

GSO2040 expresses the community’s vision for what it wants to be in 20 years and creates a broad framework of policies for achieving that vision. These policies are based on extensive public input and conversations, a review of data about the current state of Greensboro, alignment of existing plans from City departments, collaboration with community partners, and a review of current trends affecting cities across the country.

GSO2040 uses several key pieces to describe our current values, the vision of what we want to achieve, and the goals and strategies we will use to get there.

IntroductionTells you what a comprehensive plan is, describes our public engagement process and what we heard, summarizes key data points, and has a brief section on Greensboro’s history.

Our & Values. These are the aspirations that are most important to our community today, produced by thoroughly analyzing public input and priorities. Together they create a picture of what we want to be true for our community in 20 years based on input from the public and Greensboro leadership.

Six Big Ideas. Our Six Big Ideas are the heart of GSO2040. Extracted from Our Vision, the Six Big Ideas incorporate shared values and define the goals and strategies that make up policies that will move us toward the future.

Maps & ImplementationOur Anticipated Land-Use Maps, based on the policies of GSO2040, are used to guide future land-use decisions for rezoning, annexation, and capital investment.
