Comprehensive Plan Open House

In an effort to make sure we get as much feedback as possible, we are keeping the public comment period open until Friday, November 22nd. Anyone can visit to review the draft comprehensive plan, the draft implementation plan, the posters that were used at the open house, the results of the community survey, as well as other documents related to the update of the Comprehensive Plan. Please remember that these are not final documents.  The goal of the open house was to present what has been prepared to date and seek feedback on how we are progressing with crafting the vision. A copy of the draft plan and all of the display posters used at the open house may also be viewed at City Hall.  Staff continues to work with our consultants on reviewing and incorporating comments, as well as planning for our next steps in the project. Information on this important project will be forthcoming via the weekly emails and other city communication tools.
