In the past five years, the City of Jonesboro has undergone exciting changes.  New investment in downtown, new parks, and new businesses have led to a stronger community.  With these changes, it is time to update the city’s comprehensive plan to develop new projects and land use policies to continue the success of the past five years.  Updating the comprehensive plan offers the city of Jonesboro the opportunity to look beyond the execution of day-to-day services and consider where they want to be in the next five years - as well as what has to be done to get there.

This site will serve as the public-facing project hub for Jonesboro Forward, the required update to the City of Jonesboro Comprehensive Plan.  We will provide updates throughout the process, provide activities for you to give us feedback, and provide draft documents for your review and comments.  Sign up below to receive updates as we go through this process together.
