On February 27, the Planning Commission held a public hearing on proposed Comprehensive Plan goals and policies for the Community Culture chapter of the Plan. The Commission heard public testimony from 60 citizens in addition to the written comments posted to this web page. The Commission then closed the public testimony and deliberated on the Recreation section of the proposed goals and policies. After concluding their deliberations on Recreation, they continued the hearing to March 12 to deliberate on the remaining topics in the Community Culture chapter of the Plan (Arts, Civic Engagement, Education, Historic Preservation, and Library Facilities & Services).
The Commission directed staff, by majority vote, to include revised policies in the Recreation section, to be forwarded to the Council. A formal vote on the full set of Community Culture goals and policies to be recommended to the City Council will take place at the conclusion of the March 12 hearing, once the remaining topics have been addressed. The City Council will consider the Commission’s recommendations for their preliminary adoption in May.
The Commission approved the following:
(This language is pulled from Goal 5, Section 7, Policy 1 of the existing Comprehensive Plan.)
Not Lake Specific
(This additional language is pulled from Goal 8, Policy 15 of the existing Comprehensive Plan.)
(This is a new policy.)
