Conceptual Framework Plan

Our third public meeting was held on September 20th and preliminary recommendations were presented along with conceptual land use policy scenarios. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback, and study the scenarios in detail. The team will take this feedback into consideration as they now begin to develop the draft plan. The team will be back in mid-December or early-January for a final public meeting to present the draft plan and gather additional feedback

Walden's Ridge Area Plan: Workshop Follow-up

The June 22nd Public Planning Workshop was a success! Many of your neighbors listened to a presentation on the intent of the plan and what staff has studied and found so far. Residents also gave input on what kind of growth they would like to see (or not!), and shared their priorities on issues like mobility and code enforcement. The slideshow of the presentation can be viewed HERE.
