In 1986, the residents of Georgetown decided that an ongoing, functioning comprehensive plan was a necessity for the City, adopting it as a requirement in the City Charter. The first plan, called the Century Plan, was adopted in 1988 and laid the groundwork for Georgetown’s transition into a new century. After twenty years and numerous changes to the community and its projected growth, the time had come for a new vision. The 2030 Plan was completed in February 2008 after a year-long collaboration by a citizen-led steering committee, an outside consultant and extensive community input. The plan is designed to help carry out the long-term vision of the community and yet be adaptable to changing conditions and new opportunities.
