In the intervening years, Coppell has experienced tremendous success implementing major elements of the Vision 2030 plan, and City Council and City staff have used the plan continuously to prioritize projects. The plan continues to be not only a reference document, but a starting point for major city projects, iniatives and investments. Projects such as the revedelopment of the Cozby Library and Community Commons, the Andrew Brown Park System, Life Safety Park, important street and utility infrastructure improvements, sidewalks and trails, public safety equipment and upgrades, Old Town redevelopment, and the upcoming Arts Center resulted from this plan.

To a large degree, the successes enjoyed today in Coppell are the result of the work that took place through Coppell Vision 2030 process and the deployment of that plan by dedicated residents, leaders, and city staff.
Since 2009, the City of Coppell has undergone many changes that have altered the environment. The city is rapidly approaching build-out and will be facing challenges associated with the redevelopment of existing spaces to accommodate future growth. Community demographics are changing in ways that are both typical of other communities and unique to Coppell. Like many communities, residents are aging and looking for ways to stay engaged within the community. The City is heavily investing in succession planning and leadership development to ensure that the next generation of leaders can build upon the foundation of the existing culture of service and excellence.
It is against this backdrop that the planning for the future of Coppell is now taking place with Coppell Vision 2040.
