Comprehensive & Long-Range Plans

Comprehensive Plan

A comprehensive plan is a “blue print” for the future of a city. It articulates the vision of the community as to what its citizens want it to become in the future. It identifies the goals the community aspires to reach as it grows. It is a document that will guide policy decisions about growth and change.

The City has faced tremendous growth in the past decade, and that growth is anticipated to continue over the next decade. The Comprehensive Plan evaluates where Buda is today and looks at components of the city such as the downtown, parks, city infrastructure, and quality of life. The plan helps develop a citizen-created vision for how the city grows over the next 10 to 20 years. Based on this vision and trends of today, the plan makes recommendations to accommodate and manage future growth.

After over a year of hard work, committed involvement, and diligent review, the Buda City Council unanimously adopted the Our Buda, Our Future Comprehensive Plan on January 3rd, 2024. The citizen-guided plan is intended to guide growth and development over the next decade and beyond. To read the plan in its entirety, click on the link below.
