City of Cibolo Master Plan
The 2004 Master Plan is an effort to capture, harness, and direct the growth to diversify the City's economic base, retain its small-town charm, and provide coordinated, adequate infrastructure.
To solicit direct input from the public, EC prepared, deployed, and analyzed the results of an on-line Community Issues Survey. The results of the survey have demonstrated community priorities, and the public input process has helped shape policy directions and recommendations. A project website was developed to provide current information about upcoming meetings, review of draft documents, schedule, and post questions about the process.
EC performed an existing Land Use Analysis to evaluate growth patterns, and relative deficiencies and surpluses in land use types. EC also prepared population projections to assist in Capital Improvements planning and Future Land Use planning. EC worked with community advisory groups on policy issues such as neighborhood connectivity, downtown revitalization, greenbelt and parkland development, design standards, and housing options.
For each plan element (housing, economic development, future land-use, CBD transportation, water supply), EC formulated a series of goal, policies, and programs. Each program identified in the plan is a specific action item to be taken in support of the specific policy, and further the goal.
One of the goals that EC realized during the project was to provide a carefully integrated plan. The CBD element brought together the community’s desire for a pedestrian-friendly community gathering place to anchor the City’s identity with its history. Drainage improvements coordinated with park and greenbelt improvements are focused at the downtown, creating a central, mixed civic space.
