Vision 2040 is the subsequent phase of strategic planning for our community's future beyond the Coppell Vision 2030 plan. This initiative aims to clarify community priorities that are representative of our demographics and define a clear roadmap that the City of Coppell can use to move into the future.
The Vision 2040 process began in the fall of 2017 with the Citizen Summit, an event initiated by the City Council that kicked off the visionary thinking process for residents engaged in planning for the next 20 years.
Since the Citizen Summit, we've contracted a professional facilitator to assist us in the large-scale visioning process, which will be the basis for the new strategic plan. The community engagement phase for Vision 2040 is ramping up in June and will include dozens of input opportunities through October 2018.
Our aim is to provide an inclusive and transparent process that encourages participation for all members of our community. Upcoming opportunities to get involved include:
All data collected will be made available in a project portal for the community to see. This includes detailed information on the consultant, engagement opportunities and project updates. We hope that you will stay tuned and spread the word.

Approximately 84 residents gathered at the Cozby Library on September 21, 2017 after answering a call from elected officials asking, "What would you like Coppell to look like in 20, 30 or 40 years?" Participants received a brief overview then divided into five groups that tackled different issues:
After discussing various topics, each group catalogued and voted on the topics that they felt were most important. The exercise was intended to get residents thinking about planning for the future, and the bullet points below are part of the creative brainstorming process. Although Citizen Summit jump started the planning process, the next phase will include facilitated focus group discussions, and the final plan may or may not incorporate the ideas below.

Leading up to Citizen Summit, residents were asked to submit photos of what they like about Coppell, what they don't like about Coppell and what they would like to see in Coppell.
Over 100 photos were submitted to the vision board for consideration at the Citizen Summit.
Planning for future generations has been a hallmark of Coppell for decades, and is a key reason why Coppell looks the way it does today. From the zoning and building requirements to parks and amenities, development in Coppell has been carefully planned to reflect the ideals and values of the community. In 2009 the City of Coppell adopted the Coppell Vision 2030 plan, which provided a set of priorities, goals and objectives for Coppell elected officials and City staff to follow, much like a roadmap. At the end of 2017, approximately 60% of the objectives and critical factors for success have been accomplished and Coppell is well on its way to achieving the Vision 2030 goals.
