Planning and regulatory projects can last anywhere from six months to two years depending on the project. The public is invited to participate throughout the project, but we encourage you to get involved early and remain involved. The feedback requested changes as the project evolves.
For example, at the start of a planning project, we typically ask “visioning” questions:
- “What do you love about your neighborhood?”
- “What concerns you about the area?”
Mid-way through a project, we ask people to give feedback on preliminary recommendations to protect what is loved and address what concerns them. These recommendations may be updated several times in response to community feedback, before they are written into a draft plan.
Near the end of a project, we gather feedback on the draft plan itself.
