Commissioners will hear testimony from community members who attended last week’s hearings but could not be heard due to time constraints.
The turnout at last Thursday’s hearing was so large that City Council has decided to hold one more public hearing on the draft Comprehensive Plan goals, policies and land use map this Wednesday at City Hall.
City Council Public Hearing on Comprehensive Plan Recommended Draft
Testimony will be heard on draft goals, policies and land use map
Wednesday, January 13, 2016, 4 – 6 p.m.
1221 SW 4th Avenue
Those who signed up to testify at Council’s January 7 hearing — but didn’t get a chance — will be heard first, in the order they signed up. Other community members may sign up on a wait list starting at 3 p.m., but time for additional testimony will be limited. Please note that you may not save a spot in line or sign up to testify for anyone but yourself. No food or childcare will be provided.
At the end of Wednesday's hearing, City Council will determine whether to close the comment period then or at a later time/date. In the following weeks, Commissioners will discuss Commissioner-sponsored amendments to the draft 2035 Plan in work sessions on January 26, February 2, and February 23, 2016.
Once an amendments package is published, an additional public hearing on Council’s amendments will be scheduled in April. Please check the City Council website to confirm dates, times and locations for all hearings.
