|Workshop on city's 20-year plan scheduled for Saturday, March 15|
Monroe citizens and business owners are encouraged to attend a public workshop Saturday to assist the city in its ongoing efforts to update its comprehensive plan.
The workshop will be held from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, March 15, in the Fort Miro Room of the Monroe Civic Center.
Mayor Jamie Mayo said the comprehensive plan is the city's vision for the future as well as the basis for upcoming development in Monroe. It will detail a 20-year strategy for such factors as economic development and other growth within the city's corporate limits.
The public workshop will feature background information about the comprehensive plan, its process, and it will include interactive sessions for citizens to offer insight on ideas they have about the future development of Monroe.
"The comprehensive plan will serve as a guide for development for the next 10 to 20 years," Mayo said. "We need the input of our citizens to make sure we are considering all important aspects of life in Monroe as we plot a course of growth for our city."
Some specifics of the plan include updating the waterfront and downtown district with shops, galleries, restaurants, learning centers and residences; being able to visit multiple museums of art, history and science; southside revitalization, including commercial and residential development; historical preservation; research and development parks; and improved infrastructure, trails and gateways.
The workshop is part of a broad public input program designed by project consultant Peter J. Smith & Company, Inc. of Buffalo, New York.
Public input is a central element of the plan, which lays the foundation for the vision of Monroe's future, Mayo said.
The public input program has included two rounds of community-wide random surveying, focus groups and extensive interviews.
