Planning Commission recommends capital improvement strategy

Monday, May 15, 2017 by Joseph Caterine

At its May 9 meeting, the Planning Commission adopted a letter drafted by a joint comprehensive plan committee that recommends long-term strategies regarding the city’s Capital Improvement Program to the city manager for the coming year. “We would like (the letter adopted tonight) to have the long-range CIP strategic plan feed into the bond development process,” Stevie Greathouse, with the Planning and Zoning Department, said at the meeting. The letter this year builds significantly on the letter from the previous year, since many of the projects are ongoing. Commissioner Karen McGraw, who also served on the joint committee, said that one key addition was recommendations based on the work of the Flood Mitigation Task Force. The letter suggests incorporating the recommendations from the task force’s final report into the long-range CIP strategic plan, as well as the bond development process. Commissioners adopted the letter unanimously in a vote of 11-0.
