After an impressive community turnout in March, where we explored long-range planning issues like population, demographics, economic development and transportation, Decatur’s Comprehensive Planning process continues in April with our second phase of participation opportunities.
As we’ve mentioned before, because Decatur’s approach to planning far exceeds what’s required by the state, we use the Comprehensive Plan process as an opportunity to do a midterm check-up on our larger Strategic Plan, which was completed in 2010 and is due to be updated in 2020.
The Strategic Plan, like any planning document, is rooted in certain assumptions, expectations, and projections about the future. Want to help ensure we’re still on track as it relates to things like land use, affordable housing, and natural and cultural resources? Then make plans now to participate.
Here’s what’s coming up this month:
Phase Two Open House
Wednesday, April 20 | 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Public Works Building, Community Room, 2635 Talley Street
Open House session to focus on land use, affordable housing, and natural and cultural resources. Drop in any time. Expect a half hour to participate.
Phase Two Drop-By Opportunity
Sunday, April 24 | 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Oakhurst Garden Earth Day Event, 435 Oakview Road
