Planning Commission

The Planning Commission assists with long range planning and to encourage high quality development by making recommendations to the City Council on planning and zoning related issues.  The commission considers all City ordinances and information provided at the public hearings.  The commission will then form a recommendation to the City Council.  That recommendation is then reviewed at a future City Council meeting.  

The Planning Commission meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month.  Meetings start at 7:00pm at the Rogers Community Room and are open to the public.

2040 Comprehensive Plan

2040 comp planCommunities are ever-evolving. As they age, they change demographically. And, like people, the needs and preferences of a community evolve over time. Therefore, it is essential for a community to remain relevant to both societal trends and pressures, as well as evolving community values.

Every 10 years, the City of Rogers takes the opportunity to pause and reflect on its past, survey its present and prepare for its future. This snapshot in time is done by evaluating values and issues of importance to the community, as well as exploring current trends, and assessing the short- and long-term needs and opportunities of those who live and work here today and tomorrow. That vision is bound together in a document known as a Comprehensive Plan.

What is the Vision for Rogers in 2040?

  • Rogers is a community of choice for living and learning with attainable housing for all persons, vibrant neighborhoods, and academically inclusive schools.
  • Rogers is a community of equal economic opportunity with a creative workforce and diverse employment options, and linked transport systems that enable job mobility for workers close to home.
  • Rogers is a community of quality environments with treasured places and distinct open spaces that enrich our heritage and life experiences and contribute to our physical health and shape our social connections.

These vision statements emerged as part of the ongoing dialogue by and between residents, business owners, landowners, City staff, and Planning Commission and City Council members, and represent our ideals for what the community of Rogers shall strive to exemplify now and in 2040. These vision statements were used to develop the guiding principles for 2040 Comprehensive Plan, goals and policies that will guide decision-making.

Following a joint meeting of the City Council and Planning Commission on November 28, 2018, the Rogers 2040 Comprehensive Plan was prepared for release for the public review and comment period.
