Lindsay -- April 23rd, 2010

Invitation from the City of Harrisonburg to attend the upcoming 2010 Comprehensive Plan Review meetings:

Harrisonburg, VA April 19, 2010—The City of Harrisonburg will be holding a series of four evening meetings to give residents the opportunity to contribute to the update of the city’s comprehensive plan.

Beginning April 29th, Planning Commission will join all interested citizens in the auditorium of the Lucy F. Simms Center for Continuing Education to participate in discussions on themes such as development and transportation and other community issues.

The conversations and ideas will be recorded and will be incorporated into the comprehensive plan where appropriate. Each event will occur once a week, for four consecutive weeks, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

The event and theme schedule is:

Thursday, April 29th – Land use and Transportation,

Wednesday, May 5th – Natural Resources and Community & Safety Issues,

Thursday, May 13th – Cultural Resources and Revitalization, and Wednesday,

May 19th – Housing and Collaboration.

The comprehensive plan is a citizen‐developed, all‐inclusive document, required by the state code to be reviewed every five years. Goals, objectives, and strategies are outlined in the plan and are used by city officials to implement the desires of the community.

“It’s important to get the input of the community as we update the comprehensive plan,” said Stacy Turner, Director of Planning and Community Development. “This document helps guide city officials on policy and planning decisions, having the participation of our residents helps us make sure that we are moving in a direction that works for all of our residents.”

Evening themes correspond with subject matter and existing chapters of the comprehensive plan. The current plan is available to the public online at the city’s website www.harrisonburgva.gov/compplan or by calling the Department of Planning and Community Development at 540‐432‐7700.
