The McLendon-Chisholm City Council adopted the 2021-2040 Comprehensive Plan at the September 29 City Council meeting.

The Comprehensive Plan was created by the community utilizing relevant information from the previous Comprehensive Plan adopted in 2016, feedback from multiple sources including an online community survey and in-person community forum, and the direction provided by the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC).

“The Comprehensive Plan is a very important best practice tool that captures the vision of what the community wants to be in the future and defines how we get there,” said Mayor Keith Short. “We thank everyone involved in this effort, including the volunteers who served on the CPAC, our citizens and city staff.”
