Statesville Land Development Plan 2045

Last Updated 5/20/2024Posted in Latest City News, Planning + Zoning

A lot has changed in our community, region, and nation since 2004. To ensure we are planning for a successful future for our beloved City, Statesville is updating the City’s Land Development Plan (2004). The updated Land Development Plan will guide growth and development for the next 25 years. City leaders and staff will use this plan as a guidebook for making land use and community investment decisions. This new plan will be guided by community input. That’s why we need you to share your ideas and help shape the City’s new plan.

What is a Land Development Plan?

Statesville’s Land Development Plan provides a vision for the City. The plan guides future growth, design of new development, and public investments. The new 2045 Land Development Plan will be tailored for the City’s long-term opportunities and regional economic and market trends. This strategic approach will guide land development through clear goals and implementable actions. Following adoption of the new plan, the goals and strategies will be incorporated into current City codes and ordinances.
