COLUMBIA — The Planning and Zoning Commission, alongside the Comprehensive Plan Task Force, will host a public engagement session Wednesday night.
Members of the two groups will present reports on existing conditions in seven areas that factor into the land growth and management model otherwise known as the city’s comprehensive plan.
The Comprehensive Plan Task Force was appointed by the City Council and has 15 members. Established in May 2009, it has been meeting regularly to develop a long-term strategy for guiding growth and development policies in the city.
On Wednesday, residents will have the opportunity to review and comment on the present state of the following seven categories:
- Land use and growth management
- Mobility, connectivity and accessibility
- Economic development
- Environmental management
- Intergovernmental cooperation
- Livability and sustainable communities
The meeting will be held in Conference Rooms 1A/1B in City Hall. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting begins at 7 p.m. After an initial presentation, those in attendance will break into subgroups to discuss each of the seven categories.
