The planning process for both the Comprehensive and Sustainability Plans has been a multi-year process beginning with a series of open houses to solicit community input on a variety of topics. Phase II involved developing policies and goals to be contained in the plans based on the input received from the community at the open houses and from the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee. Phase III began in February of 2015 with two public open houses held during weekday evenings to solicit feedback from the community on the proposed policies and goals. Additionally, "office hours" were held during one weekday to encourage community members who were unable to make it during the evening to attend and provide feedback at their convenience.
Phase IV, the public hearing process and formal adoption process, will be held during March and April of 2015 when both the Comprehensive Plan and Sustainability Plan will be provided to Planning Commission and City Council for adoption and approval.
