Population Growth

Population Growth Policy

Plano will accommodate regional population growth in identified areas while preserving the suburban character of the community. 
Population Growth Action Statements

Develop a policy on new growth based on the Growth and Change map, which identifies
appropriate locations for growth and redevelopment opportunities.
Review the Growth and Change map and Future Land Use map every two years and amend
growth recommendations as development trends and conditions change. 

If required, rezone land at preferred growth and redevelopment locations to accommodate
future growth recommendations. 
Collaborate with neighboring cities to determine compatibility with residential development

Advocate with the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) to include
increased residential 
development policies within developed cities in traffic modeling.
Participate in regional discussions regarding population change and migration into the
Dallas-Fort Worth area and its impact on cities and the region.
