Shaping Gaylord’s Future

Gaylord 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update

Project Background

The City of Gaylord is beginning the process of updating the city’s 2020 – 2040 Comprehensive Plan, which is a long-range plan that helps define and guide the future of our community. The purpose of this project is to update the plan with current information and provide guidance for the community looking out to the year 2040. The city last updated the comprehensive plan in 2016.  

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A city’s comprehensive plan identifies a community’s long-term vision, goals, policies, strategies, and actions for guiding future changes and investments. The plan also provides key maps for guiding future development, including future land use patterns, housing development areas, new streets and improvements, parks, trails, and open spaces.

Gaylord’s current Comprehensive Plan consists of the following chapters:

  • Community Profile
  • Overall Goal and Planning Principles
  • Land Use and Community Design
  • Downtown
  • Housing
  • Parks, Recreation, Trails, and Open Space
  • Transportation
  • Community Resources and Public Facilities
  • Implementation / Capital Improvements Program
