A revised draft master plan was completed in September 2016 after review by City Departments and Stakeholders. The draft master plan will be presented to City Boards, Commissions and City Council for adoption based on the following anticipated schedule. Reviews will take place at a number of Boards between October 5 and October 25. The plan is scheduled to be presented to the City Council on November 10.
