The City of Covington has contracted with Dana Brown & Associates to update the 2007 Comprehensive Plan. Dana Brown & Associates are a New Orleans based multidisciplinary firm that has extensive experience in Green Design, Landscape Architecture, Storm Water Management, Urban Design, Community Planning, and Land Development Planning. In addition, Meyer Engineers, GCR and Healthy Community Services are a part of the planning team for the project.
The Comprehensive Plan Project will include an assessment and revisions to the City’s existing 2007 Comprehensive Plan. A comprehensive plan expresses a community’s values and preferences.
It is the foundation for development of decisions, regulations, and policies. It reflects what the community desires for the future. To ensure that the comprehensive plan articulates the community’s values, it is essential to engage the community.
