Land Use Meetings

Cobbs Creek Plan Amendment

After a long hiatus, we will be having two meetings to review land use for the Cobbs Creek Plan Amendment. The second one will build upon the first, so the same information will not be covered at both.

At the first meeting, we will review the existing zoning, existing comprehensive plan maps, and then go over scenarios for future land uses and what those would look like in the revised comprehensive plan.  I will provide estimates of total housing units and commercial space for each map.  The purpose of the meeting will be to really understand the possible outcomes from different future land use options, and begin to narrow down the choices.

At the second meeting, we will work on refining the land use recommendations on the preferred map, or maps…depending on the outcome from the first meeting.

If we find that we need more meetings to discuss this, we will keep going and add more.  The important thing is to start these discussions and take the time that we need to understand the preferred outcome.
