To ensure that the comprehensive plan shapes the future of a community it must be based on a solid understanding of the current conditions of the community. Therefore, the process was started with a background analysis of existing conditions to inform the planning process. A lot of the data included had been gathered by one department or another, but until now it has not been pulled together into one place. The CIA compiles and processes the information to tell the full story of the City’s existing conditions. Most of the data predates 2020 because the impact of COVID-19 skewed many of the figures typically collected on an annual basis. The Community Inventory and Analysis gives a snapshot of where the city stood prior to the pandemic and it establishes a baseline that will be used to measure progress in achieving the desired future.
