2040 Comprehensive Plan is Underway
One of CAAPB's primary statutory responsibilities is to periodically update long range planning for the Capitol Area (Statute 15B.05). The Comprehensive Plan equips the CAAPB with the tools it needs to consistently guide physical improvements and new developments. It is a baseline against which complex proposals for action can be measured by the community and by those entrusted with decision-making. It provides a foundation for the formulation of public policy and the allocation of public resources. A comprehensive plan connects the visions and aspirations of the present with their realization in the future.

The 2040 Comprehensive Plan is organized by a set of aspirational outcomes called The Capitol Area Principles. Each Principle will be a chapter in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan, developed through extensive review of existing policy, various planning tracks and studies, and interaction with stakeholder groups. The status of each Principle chapter is included below. Each planning draft will have one of three status markers:
Planning Draft in Development: CAAPB staff is currently developing the content for this chapter.
Planning Draft Released for Review: Planning draft has been released for input from stakeholders and community members.
Planning Draft Board Approved: Planning draft was approved by the CAAPB Board and the public comment period is closed.
Additional comments to Board approved chapters will be held until the final graphic design phase and reviewed at that time. We welcome comments on any planning draft chapter.
