AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - The City of Amarillo is looking to the future with ‘City Plan: Vision 2045′.

It’s a comprehensive plan for the city’s future.

It will address four topics:

  • Existing conditions
  • Community vision, goals and objectives
  • Preferred growth scenario and future land-use map
  • Implementation strategies

“We are working on creating a new vision for how Amarillo will grow and develop over the next 20 years and this is an entirely community driven process,” said Emily Koller, director of planning, City of Amarillo.

A community workshop was held tonight for residents to give input on how they’d like to see Amarillo in the future.

Koller says many want to see improvements with roads, infrastructure, parks and reinvesting into older neighborhoods.

“A lot of our growth patterns have been in southwest Amarillo and the newer parts of the city and we definitely think that the community is telling us that it’s time to focus on the older parts of the city,” said Koller.

The City Plan is divided into four phases:

  • March: Set goals
  • May: Plan
  • September: Strategize
  • November-December: Adopt
