What’s Happening So Far

THE DRAFT PLAN IS HERE!

 

And we’re really proud of everyone’s contributions.

Please feel free to share your comments and insight so that we may receive and incorporate additional input in the Plan. The draft Plan public meeting reviews are scheduled for Planning & Zoning Commission review on February 13, 2019 and Traffic & Safety Commission review on February 28, 2019.
