The City of Valdez Comprehensive Plan is a 15 to 20-year strategic document for Valdez that guides future actions of the city and provides a common framework for decision-making.

At its essence, it is the business plan for the City that ensures that the community’s vision remains the driving factor behind all decisions. In creating this Comprehensive Plan, the City of Valdez is ensuring that there is a clear direction for how the City will grow and develop that is deeply rooted in community outreach and collaboration between all stakeholders.

Throughout the process, these elements may change or new elements may be added to address issues within Valdez. Community workshops will be held regularly as draft elements are released for public review and comment. Please reference the schedule found on this website for future opportunities to get involved.

The planning area for the Comprehensive Plan includes the entire City of Valdez and the document is comprised of elements such as:

  •  Land Use
  •  Housing
  •  Economic Development
  •  Transportation/Streets
  •  Utilities
  •  Tourism and Visitor Services
  •  Community Facilities
  •  Public Safety and Emergency Services
  •  Parks and Recreation
  •  Ports and Harbor
