Arizona law requires that every community with over 2,500 residents have a general planning document that anticipates how that city will manage itself in the proceeding ten years. The Greater Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce is supportive of the planning document developed in our city, the Regional Plan 2030, and encourages the citizens of Flagstaff to vote for its adoption.

The Regional Plan is the culmination of several years of work by the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC), the city council, and various interest groups and individuals. The Greater Flagstaff Chamber spent much of 2013 heavily involved in the review and amending of the document when it came before council. Through our Community and Economic Development Committee, we spent countless hours combing through the sections, making edits that we submitted to the city that we felt would help the plan better echo the aspirations of our businesses, tourism industry, and academic communities.

The final document voted on by the city council is one that is balanced. It is a reflection of our community’s character that supports open spaces and sustainability, while also recognizing our needs to retain, expand, and attract businesses that offer competitive salaries that allow our residents to take part in the quality of life that Flagstaff offers.

The Regional Plan is a compromise. Through the various inputs of the city council, the CAC, groups, and individuals, a common ground was met that bridges the gaps between competing interests and embraces a forward looking vision for our city. While not perfect, and few government documents are, the Greater Flagstaff Chamber believes that the plan before you will be a quality guide for the future growth and sustainability of our great city. We encourage you, the voter, to give the Regional Plan a supporting vote.
