Project Overview

The City of Dickinson is updating both its Transportation Master Plan and Comprehensive Plan. These planning efforts are being combined together into one plan- Direction 2050. This long-range plan serves as a guiding document for the City evaluating factors such as community goals, land-use, zoning codes, road conditions, multi-modal facilities, crash data, and more. This update is particularly important as the Dickinson community has undergone many changes over the last decade when the last Transportation Plan and Comprehensive Plan was completed.

The goal of Direction 2050 is to understand future growth and how that growth will affect the residents and visitors of Dickinson.

Consider a penny increase in local sales tax so that there is always funding for road improvements, other infrastructure needs, etc.

Offer some tax breaks to attract more businesses to invest in our community. Loosen "the reins" a bit so that there is economic growth.

Quality of life here is great. Wages, recreation - great. Housing not as much. City should offer incentives to builders to build homes.
