How Does Lone Tree Grow? 

Development in Lone Tree is guided by the principles established in the City’s Comprehensive Plan, which informs the City’s growth for the next twenty years, and beyond. The Comprehensive Plan is reviewed every three years and is updated regularly to accommodate changing conditions in the community and to account for regulatory changes at the state level. The Comprehensive Plan is a public document and is intended to reflect the long-term goals of the community.
