From our friends at the Safe Roads Coalition:
La Plata County is working on an updated County Comprehensive Plan. This 18 month planning effort will lead to an update of 2001 La Plata County Comprehensive Plan to make sure it reflects the current needs and vision of County residents, businesses, and other stakeholders. As you know, land use planning and transportation are very closely tied together and it is essential for both that the needs of all citizens be considered as this process moves forward. We hope that you will participate in the many ways that La Plata County will make available to its citizens in this process. To learn more about the goals of this project and the many public meetings please visit the2009 La Plata County Comprehensive Plan web site. The first work session for the visioning process is coming right up:
Envisioning our Future:
July 25th (Saturday) from 9am to 4pm
Durango Community Recreation Center, 2700 North Main Avenue
An extensive Community Visioning process that will kick off the planning process, educate and inform the residents on the process, determine their values and aspirations, define common ground for the future and develop a comprehensive shared vision for the county. This meeting will set the tone for the goals that the future Comprehensive Plan will try to accomplish. This will be your chance to learn about the process and participate in setting the vision for the future of La Plata County.
