October is National Community Planning Month

Established in 2006, National Community Planning Month is celebrated each October as a way to highlight the role of planners and the importance of good planning in communities. 

Planning can be summed up as comprehensive, community-focused choices that enhance the spaces where people live, work and play. While many people may not realize it, planning has a significant impact on their day-to-day life. From where they live, to how they commute, to the type of home they live in, planning plays a vital role in a person’s life and well-being. 

Waukee has experienced record growth in the past decade. The City Planners are busy, as they are the ones tasked with working alongside the developers and builders as they submit and follow through with various projects. In collaboration with City Council, the Planning & Zoning Commission and staff, the Planning team ensures that the City's Comprehensive Plan aspects are upheld, and that zoning and design specifications are met or exceeded.
