Public Workshop #1

The Planning and Zoning Commission hosted the first public workshop on Monday, September 21, 2015, from 6:30pm until 8:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Government Center.  Planning and Zoning Commission Chair Beth Kistner welcomed everyone to the workshop and provided introductory remarks.  There were approximately 75 people in attendance at the workshop, including all Planning and Zoning Commission members.

The city’s planning consultant, H3 Studio, began the presentation by providing background information on the purpose of the comprehensive plan.  The presentation included a keypad polling exercise where each participant was provided with a keypad device that provided instant results to questions about audience demographics and community issues that may be of importance to attendees.  The presentation also featured a summary of major goals from the 2002 Comprehensive Plan, preliminary market findings, and the existing conditions analysis.  The final portion of the workshop provided for direct input from attendees working in small groups.  Each table was provided with a worksheet where participants were asked to evaluate the goals from 2002 in order to determine if they remain relevant to the current needs of the community.  Participants were also asked to provide information for other priorities that were not identified in the 2002 plan.
