Hobart Comprehensive Plan
plan hobart logoPlan Hobart is about a community working together to create a framework that will guide our city for the next 10 years through a document called a comprehensive plan. The comprehensive plan relies on public input help to create this framework, which occurs approximately every 10 years. The first city comprehensive plan was completed in 1959 and over the years several updates have been done with the most current city comprehensive plan adopted in 2003.
