On February 18, 2003, the Carrollton City Council adopted an updated Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a statement of community values, ideals and aspirations about Carrollton's future environment, and serves as the official policy of the City regarding physical development. It is a guide for future decisions by the City.

The Plan is used:

  • To help set priorities for capital improvement expenditures; 
  • As a guide for the acquisition and development of sites for community facilities; 
  • As a guide for the acquisition and protection of major open space; 
  • As a response to the Texas Local Government Code stating that zoning regulations should be adopted in accordance with a Comprehensive Plan; 
  • As a basis for zoning and subdivision regulations; 
  • As a guide for preparation of detailed physical plans for sub-areas of the City, and; 
  • To help guide the establishment of programs and policies by which the City will achieve the type of development reflected in this Plan.
