Building Community, Culture & Commerce for Now and the Future!
All great things start with a plan. As a new city, we want to make sure we create the opportunities our
expect in a ‘world-class’ city.
To do this, we must plan. One of our long-term plans includes how the city will look and function many years
now. Based on our collective experience and the best practices of other great cities, we have a solid
how to develop Stonecrest. However, we want to include input from the people and business who will be most
by our great city’s development. This is a primary reason for developing our Comprehensive Plan
The plan provides the vision for how growth within the city will be balanced with the goals and needs of its
stakeholders, impacting what the city will look like in the future. Its goal is to define a place for
residential neighborhoods, thriving commercial districts, compatible mixed-use developments, environmental
