 The Comprehensive Plan is the City of Buford's overarching policy statement and blueprint for the community's future.  It is a high-level, "big picture" look at Buford's direction for the next 20 years.  The plan will be a result of the community's collaborative efforts to envision the future of Buford, including contributions from community members, the steering committee, elected officials, City staff, and the planning team.
