Strategic Plans, Studies and Policies

The City Administration and the Department of Community Development have developed several plans that articulate the long-term vision of the City of Portage, identify goals and objectives for future growth and redevelopment and outline various implementation strategies to achieve the community vision and goals.

In addition, several of these plans are the basis for local regulations regarding land use, transportation, community quality, amongst others.
