2040 Comprehensive Plan

Adopted by the Elko New Market City Council on August, 12, 2021, the 2040 Comprehensive Plan is a document that describes the community’s vision of itself in the future and provides recommendations as to how to achieve such desired future. More specifically, the Plan is a compilation of policy statements, goals, standards and maps which guide the physical, social and economic development (both private and public) of the City.


The Comprehensive Plan has several purposes:

  • Guide growth and development within the community and lands expected to be part of the community at some future point.
  • Document community goals and values as established throughout the planning process.
  • Manage community growth in a compatible and cost effective manner.
  • Serve as a communication device between decision-makers, units of government, agencies and property owners (by guiding stakeholders in making land use decisions).
  • Provide a legal basis for the establishment of ordinances used to implement the Plan.
