The purpose of this planning effort is to identify and develop recommended updates to the City’s Economic Vitality Strategy, development codes and Town Center Subarea Plan to support and encourage the types of development desired by the community with a specific focus on the Town Center Subarea. The goal of the series of meetings is to obtain input from the community to help SCJ Alliance prepare recommendations on, and City Council appointed Town Center Task Force assist with the development of, potential updates to these strategies, codes and plan.
The City is working to host a panel discussion on economic development in mid-July; once a date is confirmed, the City will issue a news release. SCJ Alliance and the Task Force will also conduct an open house on Aug. 21. This fall, they will submit recommendations to the Planning Commission and City Council for their consideration this winter. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the discussion about the future of the community and the Town Center area.
