What is the comprehensive plan?
The Comprehensive Plan is a policy document consisting of maps and written policy statements, and goals and objectives, addressing a number of issues relating to growth, housing, economic development, transportation, environment, parks and open space, aesthetics, community character, and neighborhood and historic preservation and conservation.

The primary emphasis of the document is to provide long-range guidance to property owners, residents and decision makers on land use issues, such as where residential, commercial and industrial development should occur in the future, and at what densities. Manhattan and Riley County updated the Manhattan Urban Area Comprehensive Plan in a two-year joint planning process, culminating in adoption by the Manhattan Urban Area Planning Board, the Riley County Planning Board and the City and County Commissions in June 2003.
