Welcome to the Pleasant Valley/North Carver Comprehensive Plan web site.

This is an exciting time for the area, as this plan will allow the expansion of quality public services, such as police, schools, and parks, as well as offer community members a voice in the planning process. The plan will build off the efforts of the adjacent (to the west) East Happy Valley Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2009, and provide direction for the City’s overall Comprehensive Plan.


After a long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is picking up where it left off and moving forward with the Pleasant Valley/North Carver Comprehensive Plan. 

Here is the draft schedule for next steps:

  • July 22, 2021 – Reconvene Community Advisory Committee* (6:00pm – 7:30pm City Hall)
  • August – Open House* (in-person and online)
  • September 2021 – Planning Commission Work Session*
  • October 2021 – Planning Commission Hearing 1*
  • November 2021 – Planning Commission Hearing 2*
  • December 2021 – City Council Hearing 1*
  • January 2022 – City Council Hearing 2*

*These dates are not confirmed and susceptible to change

Community Provides Vision for the Pleasant Valley/North Carver Comprehensive Plan

The PV/NC Comprehensive Plan process is underway. The City formed a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to help develop the plan and assist with community outreach. Seven CAC meetings have occurred since October 2018, with three more planned.

In addition to the CAC, community members will have plenty of opportunities to hear about area land use and transportation plans, and to provide input on how police, schools, parks and public services should be provided. Two community workshops were held in spring 2019, with over 130 participants. Two open house events are also planned for spring/summer 2021 to gain feedback from residents. Your input will help develop the community vision for the Comprehensive Plan.

The City of Happy Valley is embarking on a land use and transportation plan that will guide the future of the Pleasant Valley/North Carver (PV/NC) area.
