Why the Framework Planning Process Matters
Framework Plans are future planning documents that provide a clear vision of the kind of place the community wants to be in the future. The Community Framework Plan influences policies that have a direct bearing on quality of life. City leaders will look to the Community Framework Plans for direction on land use, new development, transportation, housing, parks, trails and open space, utilities and economic development. It will be used by elected officials and city staff as a guide for making short and long range policy and investment decisions – regarding land use development, zoning, transportation improvements, parks, trail, housing issues, and economic development.
The Framework Planning Process is conducted by the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham (RPCGB), operating under contract to the City of Birmingham. This project is funded by the Building Communities Program. For more information visit www.rpcgb.org/community-planning/building-communities.
