Project Summary

Creating a plan for the future of Leland

Leland is creating a comprehensive plan for land use that updates, incorporates, and builds upon land use and transportation plans previously adopted by Leland, while creating the policy framework for intelligent growth over a 25-year planning horizon.

Leland has partnered with Design Workshop, a renowned and award-winning consulting firm with over 60 years of experience to create the Leland 2045 plan.  Leland 2045 will include the following elements:

  • Community Assessment – A thorough review of population, housing, demographic, and economic trends, and projections
  • Natural Resources, Resiliency, and Hazard Mitigation – An analysis of environmental assets, areas for preservation and conservation, and how future development can be guided in a manner to minimize susceptibility to natural disasters
  • Historic, Cultural, and Heritage Preservation and Enhancement – An inventory of historic, cultural, and heritage resources and information and how future development can celebrate and enhance the history and culture of the area
  • Land Use and Community Design – An analysis of Leland's existing land use and recommendations for a framework for future development that creates place-based neighborhood nodes and transects
  • Housing – A review of housing needs and trends and recommendations that will create strong neighborhoods that support lifelong housing needs
  • Transportation – Recommendations for a multi-model transportation network that supports the desired future land use patterns, including bicycle and pedestrian facility recommendations, a collector street network, street infill recommendations, and recommendations for applications of street types
  • Implementation – Specific goals, policies, and action items to implement each element of the Leland 2045 plan
