SOAR 2040 is the official name of the City of Republic, Missouri's new Comprehensive Planning Process.  This new process supports decisions relating to capital investment in transportation, public utilities, and parks as well as physical development of both public and private property.  This process contains a number of strategies and recommendations for making sure that these decisions are made at the most opportune time and with the best information possible.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A Comprehensive Plan is a document that outlines the community's goals and aspirations for growth and development. Over the next 20 years, Republic will be presented with opportunities to grow and advance. SOAR2040 will act as a blueprint to guide city officials to achieve our goals for our community. 

Who is involved with the making of this plan?

You are! As the blueprint for the City, it is critical that all of Republic’s stakeholders are involved in the development of the Comprehensive Plan. The City is committed to involving residents, businesses, and workers in the process in order to craft a cohesive community vision for Republic. Ultimately, the Comprehensive Plan will be approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council.




The SOAR project has been carefully developed to align closely to the City of Republic's Vision, Mission & Values statement:

 To grow together by always doing the right thing at the right time for the right reason.
