Together with the Downtown Master Plan Advisory Group the Planning Division staff is excited to share the
The Downtown Master Plan is a 25-year vision and implementation plan that directs growth and development in the downtown. It reflects the outcomes of nearly 18 months of public engagement and directly incorporates what our community values.
We are making some changes to the Downtown Plan to reflect concerns that were raised after the Planning Commission hearing held in August. We are preparing to take these changes back to the Planning Commission in January for their review and approval before the Draft Plan moves on to the City Council. Materials detailing the proposed changes can be accessed here.
We recently hosted three Advisory Group meetings to discuss proposed changes to the Draft Downtown Community Plan. You can access the meeting notes from these three November meetings here (pdf – begins with Nov 6 meeting; scroll for others). Notes do not reflect comments submitted to us since these meetings, however, all comments will be considered. You can submit written comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This graphic illustrates our planning process to date on this project. It shows that we are currently following an alternative path towards adoption of the plan in response to public concerns raised following the August Planning Commission hearing. We hope this clarifies where we are and we will continue to communicate where we are going and how you can be involved.
