Comprehensive Plan Update Public Input

Comprehensive Plan Update

The City's current Comprehensive Plan has been guiding development decisions for over seven years and it is time for an update. The Comprehensive Plan provides a long-range plan for the physical development of the community. A strong Comprehensive Plan, most importantly, needs to reflect the voices of the city’s residents. The process for creating the plan will included several opportunities for the public to voice opinions. The first was an online survey and four public input sessions were held at the four elementary schools in July 25-August 6, 2019). Thank you to those who participated and provided feedback. Your input will help guide preliminary planning concepts to be generated through a series of public meetings (coming soon). The results of all public input sessions will be presented to the Planning Commission on August 20, 2019.
