The Planning Commission is hosting a series of meetings about the central themes they've decided to concentrate on in revising the Comprehensive Plan, which sets city policies. The first of two meetings about downtown was last Saturday - a brief presentation and small groups with note takers discussing questions from a worksheet. At the end, if you had any ideas yourself, and the note-taker got them down right, they got added to a giant pile with all the other comments. You can do just as well by your ideas, without spending three hours at a meeting, by sending them to the city on the web input form they have open until the end of the month.
I thought it might be interesting to talk about the questions on OlyBlog, so I'm going to try that - by posting the worksheets in sections for a while. (If we end up with interesting ideas. I'll forward the threads to the city and get them included in the process.)
The first questions, about Downtown Economy, are here.
