Neighborhood Planning
Planning Better Neighborhoods
The way each person feels about the places where they live and work can affect overall health and well-being. Safe, attractive, and welcoming neighborhoods make life better for everyone living in them, and a network of great neighborhoods makes our entire city a better place to be.

Exceptional cities, and the great neighborhoods within them, don’t just happen. Cities constantly grow and change, and we can ensure that these changes are positive through the plans we make today. The Regional Plan provides guidance for preservation and growth in the coming years, and neighborhood plans are encouraged to offer guidance on a more focused level by providing a means for neighborhoods to:
  • Identify, preserve and build on the positive qualities of their neighborhoods;
  • Acknowledge and deal with existing issues or problems; and
  • Set goals and priorities that will shape the future of their area in the years to come.

A neighborhood plan includes goals, policies and specific improvement projects that define and shape the unique characteristics of an existing neighborhood. Flagstaff has many neighborhoods and subdivisions in which people call 'home'. Four neighborhood associations officially reside in the City of Flagstaff:
  • La Plaza Vieja Neighborhood Assocation
  • Southside Community Association
  • Sunnyside Neighborhood Association
  • Old Townsite Association

Flagstaff has officially adopted one neighborhood plan, The Southside 2005 Plan.

One neighborhood plan is underway, La Plaza Vieja Neighborhood Plan.
