Lewisville 2025 is a strategic plan designed to guide the development of the City of Lewisville over the next 10 to 15 years. The document also serves as a nontraditional comprehensive plan that methodically and intentionally builds on all previous plans to validate and prioritize recent, relevant initiatives. The plan is compiled in a way to address three major themes:
BIG ISSUES – Describes the current state of Lewisville, problems facing the community and the positioning of Lewisville within the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area.
BIG IDEAS – Depicts a host of wants, needs and wishes collected from the community. These ideas reflect the kind of character citizens would like to see established in the city.
BIG MOVES – These are the major recommendations that will help move Lewisville forward. The Big Moves do not encompass everything that is desired nor are they the only things to be done. They simply represent areas of focus that can have the biggest impact on the city in the shortest amount of time. In other words, they represent those big changes that can have the biggest bang for the buck.
An inclusive public involvement outreach effort was employed throughout the plan. While Lewisville 2025 is a high-level strategic document, implementation items represent well-vetted actions. A steering committee, made up of 49 residents, was actively engaged. The committee debated, challenged and elevated ideas. Its tireless efforts formed a consensus plan beyond anything that has been accomplished in Lewisville in years. In addition to an active committee, City staff played a significant role in making resources available, and explaining current and proposed projects and initiatives. All departments within the City participated in the plan and contributed to the overall success of the planning process.
