Where the Rails Cross the River
In late December, the City had an opportunity to begin the process of updating its comprehensive plan. Tri-County Regional Planning Commission is paying for the update and Tri-County staff is facilitating the effort. An updated plan is important in laying out a vision and direction for the future of our community.
The 12-member Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee is made up of local residents of diverse backgrounds, experiences and interest. Working together, they have put together a community survey, a first step to updating a comprehensive plan. The survey has 25 questions that cover a lot of areas - from the length of your commute to work to what things you think are important to the future of Chillicothe. We need your input!
A link to the survey,https://www.suveymonkey.com/s/chillicotheCP is attached on this website. I encourage you to take a few minutes needed to complete the survey. And, I ask that you urge others to do the same. The survey also is available on the websites of the Chillicothe Public Library (www.chillicothepubliclibrary.org); the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce (www.Chillicothechamber.com) and Pearce Community Center (www.pearcecc.com). Paper copies are also available at those same locations.
The more people who complete the survey - and the more honest they are in their responses - the more valuable the input will be to the Advisory Committee. Please complete the survey by March 10th. You will not be asked to identify yourself.
The City Council has a lot of issues before it. Nothing is more important than updating the Comprehensive Plan. But the information is valuable only if you participate. Our ability to move the City forward depends on it. Thanks.
