During the meetings, you will be able to listen to a short overview of what the planning process for the Comprehensive Plan and Downtown Plan involves. Then, you will be able to participate in a community discussion where we listen to your ideas about what Garden City’s and the Downtown’s future should involve during the years ahead. Your feedback will be used to develop alternatives and concepts that you can comment on this summer.
BACKGROUND
It has been several years since Garden City last created plans for the future of Garden City and the Downtown. We are now in the process of creating a new Comprehensive Plan, to plan for the next 20 years, along with a new Downtown Plan. We kicked off the planning process during December 2020 and will continue it through the fall of 2021. The plans will capture the vision of the community, and how to make the vision a reality. Key topics include: jobs; housing and affordability; growing as a regional destination; transportation options; Downtown business; and the look and feel of Downtown.
