What is the Process?
A working group will be formed to work with staff on updating the Everest Neighborhood Plan which will include revisiting the vision statement and policies to determine if they are relevant for the future growth of the area. People interested in participating in the working group should contact staff below. A robust public outreach process will solicit input on revisions to the plan including public workshops, a survey and other opportunities. The community will have an opportunity to comment on the draft plans prior to the public hearing before the Planning Commission and final adoption by City Council by the end of 2021. See schedule for key steps and timing.
