Moving McAlester Forward



Update:"The Final Comprehensive Plan is available for viewing! Join us on Tuesday, August 13th as our City Council prepares for adopting the plan."

What is a Comprehensive Plan? Comprehensive planning is a process that determines community goals and aspirations in terms of community development. The outcome of comprehensive planning is the Comprehensive Plan which dictates public policy in terms of transportation, utilities, land use, recreation, and housing. Comprehensive plans typically encompass large geographical areas, a broad range of topics, and cover a long-term time horizon. For us, our Comprehensive Plan is called "Moving McAlester Forward". Moving McAlester Forward is the manifestation of a common vision developed through analysis and input from McAlester residents, business professionals, community stakeholders and local government officials. It serves as the City's guide for policy, infrastructure and planning decisions for years to come, providing the path to a better quality of life and successful development. McAlester's needs are evolving, and we're making improvements in areas like housing and transportation choice, public health and beautification. As most cities of our size, we continue to face challenges struggling with diversifying our economy and growing our population. This plan will help us focus on our strengths and develop strategies to encourage improvement in our weaknesses as a City. Join us in creating our Comprehensive Plan for 2040 and be a part of each new step we take in Moving McAlester Forward.
