Public input sought for comprehensive plan update

Staff report

SIDNEY — Sidney officials, together with the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee, have started the process of updating the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

On Tuesday, March 1, residents will be able to participate in an interactive community forum from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Sidney-Shelby County YMCA located at 300 E. Parkwood St.

Participants will learn about comprehensive planning, receive a snapshot of the results of the ongoing community survey and participate in activities which will help guide the Plan. The planning and economic development firm Reveille Ltd., of Bowling Green, Ohio, was retained to assist with the Comprehensive Plan Update and will be facilitating this event.

The Plan will help guide community officials for the next 5 or more years in areas such as neighborhoods, land use and development, parks and recreation, infrastructure, community services and facilities, and transportation.

Residents are also urged to complete a community survey and learn more about the planning process. This information and a link to the 18-question survey can be found by selecting the “Community Survey” link on the city website,
