The greater Flagstaff community embraces the region's extraordinary cultural and ecological setting on the Colorado Plateau through active stewardship of the natural and built environments. Residents and visitors encourage and advance intellectual, environmental, social, and economic vitality for today's citizens and future generations.

When there are frequently asked questions about the Regional Plan that are not clearly stated in the document, the Comprehensive Planning Manager will issue an interpretation. Over time, interpretations are incorporated into the plan through relevant amendments. View the current list of plan interpretations (PDF).
