More detailed descriptions of land use, transportation and city parks will likely be included in a new master plan, which the Planning Commission is just starting to review.

The commission went over policies and procedures Tuesday necessary for a more comprehensive plan and will work with community planner Andy Hall from the Mountain Association of Governments.Hall said Alpine has just a shell of a master plan now, and city planners want to strengthen the land-use portion first to use as a guide.

Jannicke Brewer, Planning Commission chairwoman, said the last scheme even close to a master plan for this mountain town was approved in 1990. That plan set goals and policies but failed to put the plan into action by ordinance. Only bits and pieces of a master plan exist now, including a zoning map, street plan and trail plan.
