Dacono Forward Comprehensive Plan 2017


Adopted in 2017, the "Dacono Forward Comprehensive Plan” will guide our community into the future with great thought, passion and intention. The vision is of a community with a diversity of living choices ranging from starter homes and cottages to paired and patio homes. Residents will benefit from connections to public and open spaces, a regional trail system, and a growing number of civic and recreational facilities.

The vision of this plan will be advanced through efforts by its appointed and elected officials, residents, business and property owners, and other stakeholders invested in a complete and healthy community.

Examples of the overarching intentions of the plan include:

  • High aesthetic standards for new development
  • Provisions for a robust and diverse local economy
  • Improved strategic gateways
