By now, another story about the Comprehensive Plan is about as welcome as dust on crust. But be patient, we’re nearing the finish line.
Yet again, it’s critical to get input from a broad swath of citizens, not just the usual suspects. And giving input can be as simple as describing what’s in your neighborhood, or what’s lacking.
Last month, I attended one of these character district workshops and was impressed. The quantity and depth of information presented can be intimidating, but it just means planners are doing a thorough job. Staffers are on hand to walk you through the process and explain everything. And really, anyone can participate — even, as the adage goes, if you’ve lived here only a minute.
Planners are holding workshops today through Tuesday all around the valley. Click here for a complete schedule, or just stop by the 4-H building, 255 W. Deloney Ave., any day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The future is up to us. Don’t be left grousing about a hollow bar of soap.
