A long-range vision for Appleton's future is in place.
The city council approved the Envision Appleton plan last night.
Monica Stage is the deputy director of the community development department. She says the comprehensive plan will be a guide for future land use decisions. She says it covers the physical development of the city, quality of life decisions, neighborhoods and housing, transportation, and various corridors.
Stage says that includes places for businesses, including Wisconsin Avenue, S. Oneida Street and Northland Avenue. She says they also looked at areas for future growth, and possible sites for industrial parks.
