The Silver City Comprehensive Plan (PDF) sets forth the Town’s goals regarding the types and locations of future land use and activities. It outlines the character and quality of development, as well as the process for how development should proceed. While the Plan addresses many Town issues, there are other factors outside of the Town’s control that influence its future land use, growth, and development.
Market forces and economic trends, as well as the land use and transportation decisions of adjacent communities and Grant County, are examples of the types of factors that will influence the Town of Silver City. It is important that the Plan recognizes such influences and includes a set of goals that are visionary, yet realistic, in light of these factors.
