Chadron Comprehensive Plan Update

Chadron, Nebraska

The Lakota Group, along with a team of sub consultants, Baker Engineering of Scottsbluff, Nebraska and Urban Development Services of San Antonio, Texas, completed a new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Chadron, Nebraska (population: 5,767), the county seat of Dawes County and home to Chadron State College. The Plan updates an earlier comprehensive plan from 1997 and addresses issues related to neighborhoods and housing, growth management and city infrastructure, parks and open space, urban design, transportation and bike trail networks, small business development, downtown revitalization, and heritage tourism. An energy efficiency element that documented Chadron’s energy infrastructure and usage by land use, as well as recommended measures for encouraging energy conservation by the public and private sectors, was also incorporated into the Comprehensive Plan.
