About Community Plans
Community plans help the City make informed decisions about how Coralville may develop in the future. A community plan is a public document which:
- Contains specific proposals for future land uses and public improvements, and
- Provides a guide for community development.
The Planning Process
Community plans are created with considerations of historical trends, existing conditions, future needs, population growth, resources, transportation, economic development, social characteristics, and geography. Community plans are developed through a partnership of City staff, consultants, and public input, followed by approval of the City Council.
Coralville Community Plan
The 2014 Coralville Community Plan was approved by the City Council in March 2014. It was developed following a year-long process and incorporates input from residents and business owners through public meetings, surveys, interviews, online mapping, and other tools. It replaces the 1992 Coralville Community Plan but does not replace the 1995 Amendment (Oakdale Boulevard Corridor) and the 1998 West Land Use Plan.
West Land Use Area Plan
The West Land Use Area is located between I-380 and Coral Ridge Avenue/Highway 965, south of Forevergreen Road, and north of I-80. In early 2015, the City began the process of expanding on the 2014 Coralville Community Plan by establishing a clear vision for the future of the West Land Use Area. The resulting West Land Use Area Plan includes a detailed master plan and design guidelines for the growth and development of this area of our community.
West Land Use Area Master Plan (2016)
The City Council voted to adopt the plan in February 2016. In August 2016, the City Council voted to adopt an amended plan that changed the classification of building material uses and the combined the individual classifications of Community Retail Buildings and Regional Retail Buildings into one classification.
