Community Vision Plan for Downtown Redevelopment and Pedestrian Connections
In 2013, the City of Foley partnered with the Initiative Foundation to participate in the Thriving Communities Program. As part of this program, the Thriving Communities Committee organized and led the process to develop a series of long-term goals such as improve quality and life and revitalize the community. The result was the Foley Community Vision Plan for Downtown Redevelopment and Pedestrian Connections.

Comprehensive Plan for the City of Foley
The Community Vision Plan falls under our Comprehensive Plan for the City of Foley. A comprehensive plan is an expression of the community’s vision for the future and a strategic map to reach that vision. Comprehensive planning is not mandatory in cities outside the seven-county metropolitan area. However, comprehensive planning is an important tool for cities to guide future development of land to ensure a safe, pleasant, and economical environment for residential, commercial, industrial, and public activities.
