Planning Commission to Review Draft Study Areas! 

Planning Commission to Review Draft Study Areas!

On Tuesday, July 23, the Planning Commission will review and discuss the draft study area boundaries, and provide a recommendation to City Council. The General Plan study areas are those areas that have the potential to experience land use changes over the next 20 years. Identifying study areas is the first step in the process to develop and select land use and transportation alternatives. Meeting materials are available here.
