Influential urban planner Daniel Burnham famously stated, “Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die." It is with these big plans in mind that the City of Menifee’s planners and Community Development team approach projects. As National Community Planning Month comes to a close, the City of Menifee recognizes the important role planners play in making Menifee a premier place to be.
Each October, people throughout the nation celebrate the role that planning plays in creating great communities with National Community Planning Month. It is a time to highlight the important work planners do to improve the well-being of all people living in a community because of planning’s comprehensive perspective. This approach leads to safer, resilient, more equitable, and more prosperous communities.
Menifee continues to be one of the fastest growing communities in Riverside County. With this comes great potential, highlighting the importance of community planning. Community planning is a process that engages residents and businesses to shape the vision for the future of a city. This vision is reflected in plans such as the City’s General Plan.
