As Cañon City prepares for its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2022, and begins to look toward the next 150 years, the City is seeking to provide itself with tools to address new challenges and embrace new opportunities. As a document that is intended to not only be forward-thinking in its approach, but to serve as policy resource when evaluating certain land use, infrastructure or economic matters, the City's Comprehensive Plan must be updated to reflect changes that have occurred since the Plan was last adopted nineteen years ago.

The City's Zoning code and Subdivision/Development Regulations are also in need of an update. Not only should these regulations reflect and reinforce the goals and policies of the City's Comprehensive Plan, they should be more closely tailored as to their local applicability and their user-friendliness. While existing zone districts are not likely to change as part of this effort (including the recently adopted Riverfront Zoning Districts,) discretionary use zoning, signs, subdivision regulations, site plan design standards and parking standards will be examined for changes needed to not only make the City's requirements reflect the unique conditions of Cañon City, but also make them more easily comprehensible to citizens who may not have experience with land development.

It is anticipated that the Comprehensive Plan Update and the Zoning code/Subdivision & Development Regulations updates will match one another in style, terminology, formatting and intent. It is also anticipated that the use of illustrations, to demonstrate important concepts visually, as well as the use of tables and graphs to summarize information, will be an important part of the work to be done.
