Comprehensive Plan

While the current plan, adopted in 2006, is a great foundation, it's time to update. We need to check-in with the community and build a roadmap for the next 10 years. The goal is to have an updated Comprehensive Plan adopted in 2020.

The key to a comprehensive is YOU, the community of Scarborough. That's residents, employers, adults, and children. Everyone can have a key part in developing the plan.

To help you participate in and follow the process, this webpage is your ticket to all events, activities, and progress on the plan.
