Comp Plan Draft Now Available for Public Review and Comment

Following its public presentation to both the Planning Commission and City Commission, a draft of the 2016 Comprehensive Plan (dubbed “Decatur 360”) is now available for resident review and comment.

Mayor Garrett acknowledged the many residents who’ve helped bring us to this point and offered words of encouragement to others. “Thanks to all who’ve participated so far,” she said. “Almost 1500! I encourage you to read and review the most recent draft and give us your input. I think you’ll find it informative and will see what we’ve accomplished since our ten year Strategic Plan was set in 2010.

“What we have today is a draft that clarifies those goals, identifying what the community envisions for the next five years moving forward. So please continue to be a part of the process as it unfolds.”

The Process

Residents will have until Tuesday, September 6 to review and comment on the Plan, culminating in a follow-through draft to once again go before our Planning and City Commissions. Those meetings will occur Tuesday, September 13, and Monday, September 19, respectively.

Here’s how to chime in:

  1. To provide your input publicly, for others’ review and consideration, share your thoughts below in the Comments section.
  2. To provide input directly to Decatur’s Planning Director leading the project, click here.

All comments will ultimately be available as part of the public record and will be factored as possible or applicable into the next draft.

Thanks to everyone taking part in this process. Stay tuned for future updates.
