Land Use & Transportation Plan

Phase 2 - Long Range Planning

The City is in the process of developing a Land Management and Transportation System Plan update based off the recent Community Vision and Strategic Action Plan adoption. The purpose of updating both plans is to lay the groundwork for what will provide a successful future for development and preservation of Battle Ground, while identifying areas of growth and viable economic development.

Background

The City, along with a team of consultants and stakeholders, comprised of local residents and business owners, have been laying the groundwork to develop an updated Land Use Master Plan. An updated plan is one of several steps to implement Battle Ground’s Community Vision, the result of a 2018 visioning process that involved extensive community engagement. A land use master plan is a detailed plan for the community that addresses land use patterns, how infrastructure is planned to support growth, and how the Community Vision is implemented.

The stakeholder group has developed three land use alternatives to identify areas of growth, preservation, and economic development.

Next Steps

The alternatives in this storymap are conceptual and not set in stone. A preferred alternative will be chosen for the Land Use Master Plan based on the feedback that comes from the community and its stakeholders. The preferred alternative may include mixing and matching parts of different alternatives to get to the right solution for Battle Ground.

An updated land use plan will lay the groundwork for future development by identifying areas of growth, preservation, and economic development. This will also be the foundation for starting the transportation system plan.
