Overview – Smithville’s Future Land Use

Smithville’s Future Land Use

Every Comprehensive Plan includes what’s called a Future Land Use Map. The Smithville Future Land Use Map represents the practical translation of the Smithville 2030 community vision into a planning and land use framework.

Creating the Future Land Use Map

The map is created based on four key considerations:

  • The community’s collective vision for the future
  • Population, housing and economic projections.
  • Natural features and existing conditions.
  • Implementation of recommended policies and tools.

Importantly, the Future Land Use Map is a guide for land use policy and decision making but is not actually a policy itself. The Future Land Use Map is a valuable tool to be used as a basis for land decisions in the next 10 years including zoning, rezoning, and development in Smithville.

The Future Land Use Map is one of the key tools used by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Board of Aldermen for requested development proposals and zoning changes.
