Indian Trail Town Council Approves 2041 Comprehensive Land Use Plan

Comp Plan Approved

At the July 12 meeting, the Indian Trail Town Council approved the 2041 Comprehensive Land Use Plan, which is a 20-year guide for future growth in Indian Trail. 

Using data analysis and public input, Indian Trail’s Planning Department developed three potential directional scenarios for the Plan: Status Quo, Conservative, and Aggressive. Based on feedback from the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee, residents and business owners, and the Planning Board, the Planning Department recommended the Conservative scenario, which the Town Council ultimately adopted. 

In the Conservative scenario, several areas throughout the Town change from high density to medium-density residential and from medium density to low-density residential. There are no areas in which the density will increase. 

The updated Comprehensive Plan also includes the Advisory Committee’s revisions to the Town’s vision, goals, and objectives based on public input, updates to basic demographic data, new mapping, report clarification, and an easier-to-read document.

“A major concern for our residents and for our council members is the amount of growth that’s happened in Indian Trail over the last decade,” said Mayor David Cohn. “Council knew the Conservative scenario was the best option for our Town. While we all know growth is important, it is also important to ensure our infrastructure can handle the increase in population and that our residents can maintain a positive quality of life. Indian Trail was ranked one of the top places to live in the United States, and we want to keep it that way. I appreciate the hard work of our Planning Department and the Advisory Committee on the updated Comprehensive Plan.”

Work began on the Comprehensive Plan update in 2020 and took place in four phases, which included data gathering and analysis, visioning, stakeholder interviews, a public survey, and public meetings. 

“The last update to the Comprehensive Land Use Plan was in 2013,” said Tim Jones, senior planner, and project manager for the Plan update. “Indian Trail has changed a lot since then. It was time to take a fresh look at the plan and the future of the Town. The 2041 Plan provides a clear roadmap for growth and will be an excellent guide for decision-making. I want to thank everyone who had a hand in the Plan update process, especially the members of the Advisory Committee, for their hard work and guidance.”
