In 2015, the City of DeSoto updated its comprehensive plan, which was over 10 years old. The plan provided critical updates that city leaders needed to help guide their future decisions. Population projections and the community's ultimate build-out capacity were calculated. The City also focused on creating new vision projects, since many of the vision projects in the previous plan were completed. Notably, the plan was redesigned to be more user-friendly and visually appealing.
