Final Comprehensive Plan

What is the Comprehensive Plan?

Titled “Bristol Becomes,” the City’s first-ever Comprehensive Plan is the result of a process that began with a look at current conditions in Bristol and an inventory of community efforts already underway.  Additional information was gathered through public surveys, focus groups, and a series of workshops that brought City leaders and community members together to describe the Bristol they would like to achieve in future decades.

The result is a 158-page plan that gained the approval of the Bristol, Tennessee Planning Commission in June, 2020 and was adopted by City Council in August, 2020. 


Our Comprehensive Plan addresses some of the following topics:

  • City Services
  • Economic Development
  • Housing
  • Land Use
  • Parks and Open Space
  • Transportation
  • Urban Design
  • Utilities
