NEW ALBANY STRATEGIC PLAN
The New Albany Strategic Plan has been guiding development in the community since its adoption in 1998. It is a critical tool for the growing community to preserve character, reduce impacts of development, and encourage investment that contributes to the community. It promotes balanced growth within the community by specifically addressing development densities and aesthetic standards for both residential and commercial districts, street corridors, and gateways. A mixed-use development approach was taken to develop the Village Center in an integrated and accessible manner. Updated planning efforts continue the focus on the Village Center, identifying catalytic projects and guiding private development.
The original plan has been regularly updated to reflect the evolving nature of New Albany and the demand for growth. With each update, the planning effort has been a highly collaborative process involving elected leaders, administration, and community members.
