Planning commissions seek community feedback for East Area Plan

Saturday, June 26, 2010 | 3:43 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA – The Columbia and Boone County planning and zoning commissions scheduled a meeting to present draft findings and get community feedback regarding the East Area Plan.

The fourth public information meeting is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Elks Lodge, 4747 E. Elk Park Drive.

The agenda outlines a presentation sandwiched between two question-and-answer sessions.

The two organizations have invited anyone to attend, and residents will be asked to participate in a breakout session to assist in further development of the plan.

The joint commissions will be looking for feedback on the draft of future land use intended to guide growth on the land  bound by Interstate 70, U.S. 63, New Haven and Rangeline roads in eastern Boone County.

The planning departments made a draft of the Land Use Analysis and Allocation chapter available online for the public to see before the meeting.

Additional meetings have been planned to give residents the opportunity to see the progression of the planning process.

The Columbia City Council and the Boone County Commission are planning to hold a public hearing before adopting a final plan.
