The Central City 2035 Proposed Draft, a framework for Central City's future, was released for public review on June 20, 2016. Since then, two public hearings were held before the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) on July 25 and August 9, when the public provided testimony. More than 750 community members, City bureaus, other public agencies and organizations, expressed their support, concerns and ideas on a variety of topics to improve the proposed plan for growth and development in the urban core.
The Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) has held four worksessions with City planners to discuss public testimony and staff proposals in response to the feedback. The following topics were discussed at each of the worksessions held to date:
Three more worksessions are scheduled for February 14, February 28 and April 11. Discussion items for these worksessions will be based on any outstanding topics that need to be addressed. The preliminary list of items includes:
The Planning and Sustainability Commission’s CC2035 Recommended Draft is currently planned for public release in late April with City Council public hearings in May. City Council will hold work sessions with City planners in June leading to final action on the plan. The adopted CC2035 Plan will not go into effect until the City’s recently adopted Comprehensive Plan 2035 becomes effective, most likely in January 2018.
