The master plan was developed with community involvement to ensure that it reflects community needs and values. This document provides a summary of the planning process, the visioning and goals for the park, and sets a standard for design relating to all future development of the park.

Jeffrey Mansion Master Plan (2003)
The Jeffrey Mansion Commission of the City of Bexley set out to develop a plan for the restoration and possible expansion of the Jeffrey Mansion as a multi-purpose community center. The plan was later refreshed in 2018, giving us the Jeffrey Mansion Master Plan Refresh (above).
Land Use Strategy
The Bexley Land Use Strategy was formed in order to address challenges facing the city, and in order to identify strategic priorities, recognizing that a consensus-built plan was needed in order to create a concerted effort and an appropriate sense of urgency within city leadership.
Main Street Design Guidelines
The Main Street Design Guidelines will serve as a model for property owners to improve their individual portion of the corridor, thereby creating a more successful neighborhood for all. These guidelines will assist and inspire property owners in their redevelopment efforts and establish a base level of what is expected by the city. In addition, these guidelines will aid the fair and consistent review of zoning and planning applications.
Safe Routes to School Plan
The City of Bexley and Bexley City Schools jointly developed a Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program to encourage safe walking and biking to and from school. SRTS is a national and international movement to create safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for children to bicycle and walk to and from schools. The program has been designed to reverse the decline in children walking and bicycling to schools
Southwest Bexley Master Plan
The Southwest Bexley Master Plan was initially completed in 2003, and later updated in 2017. This master plan provides a series of recommendations for improving the southwest Bexley area, and for improving the interface between Capital University, Trinity Lutheran Seminary, and the City's residential neighborhoods.
Zero Waste Plan
The City of Bexley’s Mayor and Service Director were approached a few years back regarding the development of a Zero Waste Plan (ZWP). Timing and funding were an issue at the time. In 2015, another meeting was scheduled to discuss the possibility of completing a ZWP with the City. Discussions were also held with SWACO to determine if grant funding would be available. At the time, SWACO was revising its grant program. GT Environmental, Inc. (GT) presented the ZWP opportunity to Bexley City Council. The Council agreed to move forward with a grant application to SWACO for the 2016-2017 funding year. The grant application was prepared and submitted in July 2016 and was approved by SWACO in August 2016.
