Comprehensive Plan

The City of Mexico comprehensive plan was updated and adopted in September 2014. We made a commitment to evaluate our strengths, our weaknesses and explore opportunities for our future. We took step back from our day-to-day routines and took steps towards envisioning where our community should be in the next 10 years and beyond.

A comprehensive plan is the principal tool that provides a broad-based framework, outlining a municipality’s course of action for the future. The Comprehensive Plan Update of Mexico, Missouri is the city’s official statement to be utilized to make informed decisions to guide development, redevelopment, set-forth policies, plans and programs.

Benefits of an Updated Plan
The updating of the plan involved a process that determined community aspirations and goals in terms of development and policy for land use, economic development, transportation, utilities, recreation, and other components that make Mexico a great place to live, work and play.

The Comprehensive Plan of Mexico, Missouri is a “blueprint” or “roadmap” to achieve the kind of future desired by the residents of the City of Mexico. The process engaged the community through a series of public forums and web-based participation tools to allow citizens to have the opportunity to participate in shaping the future of Mexico.
