Open house on comprehensive plan April 23

SUMMIT COUNTY – A community open house on an update of the countywide comprehensive plan will take place from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, at the Summit County Community and Senior Center near Frisco.

“The Countywide Comprehensive Plan is the overall guiding document that establishes the county’s policies related to land use, growth and other issues of importance to the community,” said Mark Truckey, long-range planning manager for Summit County.

The comprehensive plan sets the direction for all basin master plans. The current plan was developed in 1994 and is in need of an update. The Countywide Planning Commission has had initial discussions on each of the plan’s proposed sections and is soliciting public comment on key issues.

The updated plan will address a broad spectrum of planning issues, including land use, environment, transportation, housing, community and public facilities, design and visual resources, historic and cultural resources, open space, recreation and trails and economic sustainability.

At the open house, a number of informational displays will be provided, along with opportunities for the public to submit suggestions.

The open house is intended to be an informal affair, allowing people to move around between displays. Members of the countywide planning commission and planning department staff will be in attendance to answer questions and listen to public input. For more information, call Truckey at (970) 668-4211.
