Land Use 

Land Use Policy

Plano will support a system of organized land use to provide greater housing and employment choices, where new and redevelopment areas respect existing neighborhoods and businesses. 
Land Use Action Statements

Review and evaluate the Zoning Ordinance and make appropriate amendments based on the policies of the Comprehensive Plan.
Evaluate the Future Land Use Map and Growth and Change Policy Map every five years, or as necessary, to ensure land use descriptions are consistent with city-wide goals.

Identify areas for special investment zones such as Public Improvement Districts and Tax Increment Financing Districts.
Review and update the Zoning Map to resolve land use inconsistencies between the Future Land Use Map and the Zoning Map.
Create regulations that incentivize the redevelopment of underperforming retail and multifamily development.
Review and ensure residential adjacency standards provide appropriate transitions in building height and bulk that are sensitive to the physical character of adjoining neighborhoods.
