2021 Comprehensive Plan
In 2021, the City of Battlefield collaborated with Southwest Missouri Council of Governments (SMCOG) to update the City’s 2002 Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan serves as an official guide for the community’s future growth, land use and developments. Missouri State Statutes require that zoning regulations “shall be made in accordance with a comprehensive plan.” This is a collaboration effort between citizens and local government. Our policy and decisions should be consistent with our adopted plan. This plan established goals and objectives that will assist the community in future growth.

2023 Economic & Housing Analysis Study
A report was conducted by CMT Engineers which projected that over the next 5 years, the City of Battlefield will grow at an annual rate of 5% through 2027. In order to rise to these future housing and sewer challenges, the report suggests the City consider the economic trends, employment trends, housing/zoning ordinances, and the geography of and around the Battlefield Area. All four City Boards (Board of Aldermen, Planning & Zoning Board, Economic Development Commission Board & the Advisory Park Board), the Mayor, and representatives from the Battlefield Fire District and Police Department all met on 05/02/2023 for a presentation by CMT Engineers.
