Representatives from Virginia-based design firm CZB and New York-based Ingalls Planning & Design are returning to Greenville on Aug. 7 to help facilitate the first public open house about the city’s comprehensive plan, GVL2040.
The public is encouraged to participate in a new online survey designed to identify community issues and priorities and how Greenville residents and stakeholders perceive and respond to specific trends. The results of the survey will help CZB and the steering committee draft a set of community values and create a list of the community’s highest priorities for the comprehensive planning process.
The deadline to participate is Monday, July 29.
The comprehensive plan is a long-term policy guide for the future physical development of the city that considers the input of citizens, businesses and other stakeholders, according to a news release. It includes recommendations for future land use, community facilities, connectivity, open space and recreation areas, cultural and natural resources and economic development. When complete, the comprehensive plan will provide a framework to guide decision-making and help shape the city’s growth and development over the next 20 years.
