Elkins to conduct planning meeting

People plan in their everyday lives. We plan for the day, what we are going to wear and what we are going to eat for dinner.

So why not also plan for the future of your community? The City of Elkins is doing just that with the development of a comprehensive plan.

The comprehensive planning process will determine the community’s vision and what it aspires to be in the future. The comprehensive plan will be a policy document that can help illuminate what investments should be a priority. The comprehensive plan will prioritize infrastructure, identify opportunities for new development and redevelopment, and provide land use guidance.

In order to complete this analysis, the involvement of the entire community is essential. Throughout the next year, the public will be asked for input. The first opportunity for input will be on Thursday, Sept. 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Old Brick Playhouse. More information will be made available closer to the date.

To keep updated on the planning process, please continue to visit the city of Elkins website, Facebook page and blog.
