The visioning and community engagement process will explore questions such as:
- how can we accommodate and plan for growth?
- how can we improve mobility around the city and to the region? how can we increase affordable housing opportunities?
- how can we become a more welcoming and inclusive community?
- how can we maintain and enhance our quality of life?
Planning Process and Phasing
The update process will be an opportunity to revisit the Vision Statement, Guiding Principles and policies to see if they are still relevant or need revising. The General Elements or chapters of the Comprehensive Plan contain policies that will be updated including transportation, housing, land use.
Public comments received during the process will be considered and incorporated into a revised Comprehensive Plan and related code amendments. The Planning Commission will hold meetings and a public hearing on the draft Plan in 2024. The Planning Commission will make a recommendation to City Council for a final decision on the amendments in mid 2024.
