Your City. Your Future. Plan it!

PLANIT GSO is a City initiative designed to spark community conversations about how Greensboro should grow and develop in the future. Your input will help the City create a new Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan). 

A comp plan establishes a vision for the future of a city and then is used as a road map to guide a municipality's investments, development and growth. Greensboro’s current Comprehensive Plan is now 15-years-old. 

Interested in having a City planner come to your neighborhood, community, church or social group meeting to talk about PLANIT GSO and the many ways you can participate? E-mail us your request, with suggested dates and times, as well as your contact information.

Goals (Revised)

The proposed goal topics linked below include statements for each topic that describe what residents want to see happen in the future.
