Draft Recommended Comprehensive Plan (June 2015)

The revised Draft Recommended Comprehensive Plan, prepared by BPS staff, incorporates changes based on public input and direction from the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) over the past six months. Between July 21, 2014 and May 26, 2015, the PSC held six public hearings, received over 4,000 comments from the public, and had nine work sessions to shape their recommendation. 

The PSC will be reviewing this new draft to ensure it is consistent with their earlier work session recommendations and direction to staff. Commissioners may also discuss further amendments to this draft before taking a final vote, which is expected in July. A final Recommended Plan will be transmitted to City Council in mid-summer, at which time the public may provide input and comments to Council about the Recommended Plan. City Council will then schedule public hearings on the Recommended Plan during the fall and will invite the public to comment at hearings.
