The City of Show, in an effort to guide and manager its future municipal growth, has adopted a general plan to be utilized in conjunction with Arizona's Growing Smarter legislation and development standards. The document serves as a tool for municipal leaders and community members to prioritize and direct development activities in areas such as housing, traffic circulation, natural resource management and business development in addition to Growing Smarter elements.
The Show Low General Plan Update was developed through the diligent efforts of the General Plan Advisory Committee and City Staff, together with extensive citizen participation and input received at community workshops and open houses. The City Council formally adopted this Plan on October 16, 2007. The General Plan is updated every 10 years.
