    Pima Prospers Logo That is the vision and the name of Pima County’s Comprehensive Plan update effort. The plan will be shaped – with your help – over the next year or so to guide the region’s growth, conservation and community design for decades to come.

    Vision for the Future

    To create a vibrant future for our region, the plan must address how Pima County will:

    • Both use and conserve our land, water and energy resources, most notably in our unincorporated areas on private and state trust land
    • Fuel our economy
    • Make efficient use of our existing infrastructure
    • Enrich our quality of life
    • Create healthy communities
    • Respond to the needs of our rural communities and settlements, each unique.

    Coming soon

    We will be posting drafts of the plan starting in early May. Check back at this website for the drafts, comments and more community visits.

    The State of Arizona requires counties to adopt a Comprehensive Plan and update every ten years. The state deadline for adoption of this update is July 1, 2015. We hope to hear from you. Together, we can make sure Pima prospers.

    Pima County has completed its first round of public input into the Comprehensive Plan update where hundreds of community representatives and residents participated and provided comments.  The comments have been rated, categorized and summarized in a General Overview, as well as for each individual community as follows.

    The Pima Prospers Guidance Committee representing members of the Planning and Zoning Commission, Pima County departments and County Administration with a statutory and/or policy nexus to Pima County Comprehensive Plan (comp plan), will guide development of the comprehensive plan update and initiative (Pima Prospers) by:
    • Assuring community participation as informed by the engagement of stakeholders through workshops & forums, and major landholders, other jurisdictions, and tribal governments, among others.
    • Integrating innovative planning techniques and concepts into the process
    • Reviewing progress at key milestones for adherence to the plan’s objectives and scope
    • Making sure we build on past successes from the 2001 comp plan update as we strive to meet current and future challenges
    • Making sure every solution has a problem or keep it simple
    A presentation was made to the Guidance Committee on January 22, 2014 that provided an overview of recent public participation activities including community conversations, targeted stakeholder meetings, community events, and the Mindmixer website.
