Maricopa County is required by state law to prepare a comprehensive plan for its area of jurisdiction. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved the latest comprehensive plan, Vision 2030 (PDF), in January, 2016. This plan covers a variety of topics that are important to this region's future, including land use, transportation, environment, economic growth, areas of future growth, open space, water resources, energy, and fiscal impacts. The plan includes strategies and policies to help address these important issues and ensure a strong and vibrant region for years to come.
