National Community Planning Month 2022

October is National Community Planning Month. This month recognizes City staff and community members who volunteer their time on boards and commissions to make Johnston a community where residents can Thrive. Every Day!

Planners are an essential part in helping the city grow and develop. The City of Johnston planners work to improve the well-being of residents and businesses by ensuring the developments follow the 2040 comprehensive plan. This plan will ensure our neighborhoods are safer, prosperous and our residents have a great place to play and live.
