Buckeye was recently honored for its forward thinking to meet future challenges with the development of its Imagine Buckeye 2040 General Plan.
The city took home the American Planning Association Arizona Chapter’s award for 2019 Best General Plan. The award recognizes the significant community outreach, novel design and approach, along with the unique implementation that establishes a time frame to achieve the community’s goals.
Through an extensive, citizen-driven effort spanning several years, the city adopted Imagine Buckeye 2040 as a blueprint for creating America’s next great city. This plan guides the city’s decision-making, with a vision for economic sustainability, proper land use, quality roadways and infrastructure, while maintaining sensitivity to the environment.
Imagine Buckeye 2040 was ratified by the voters with nearly 80 percent approval. The plan is the culmination of three years of hard work, numerous community meetings and over 260,000 individual community contacts.
