For the first time ever, Hot Springs Village is creating a comprehensive master plan.

This plan will provide a framework for long- and short-term planning that is clear yet flexible and will respond to changing needs and conditions. This framework should foster a resilient, adaptable, and competitive community that forges a strong identity at the scales of the overall community as well as of individual neighborhoods and provides for a high level of character, livability, economic health, and environmental quality of the community proper and the area at large.

In September 2017, the Hot Springs Village Board of Directors voted to engage two highly acclaimed and award-winning organizations, Crafton Tull and DPZ, to develop this comprehensive master plan. Both companies have had success in planning and developing communities throughout the United States and internationally. The Board of Directors also appointed an Ad Hoc Comprehensive Master Plan Steering Committee to help guide this effort.

From November 28 – December 6, representatives of Crafton Tull, DPZ, Great Destinations, and Randall Gross Development Economics worked on site in Hot Springs Village to gather information, hold presentations, and conduct meetings with members of the steering committee and the public during the charrette. (What is a charrette?) The charrette featured eight days of intense planning, design, and community input. (View charrette schedule.)

We appreciate all of the community discussion and questions posed during the charrette, and the project team is working to incorporate the community’s input into the comprehensive master plan. Thank you to everyone who is helping us move “forward together”!
