Thrive 2040

The City of Johnston adopted its Comprehensive Plan, the Johnston Thrive 2040 Plan on November 2, 2020. The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range plan that will help define and guide the future of our community. If you are not sure what a Comprehensive Plan is, learn more here (PDF).

Public Input and Participation 

During the 18 month Thrive 2040 development process, a series of community engagement events were held in conjunction with two online surveys and an online mapping tool, which gathered general public input into issues and opportunities the comprehensive plan update could address. Over 400 people provided input via online surveys and interactive maps, conversations at community events (like Kites on the Green and community picnics), and focus group conversations with various stakeholder groups. A summary of that input can be found here (PDF)
