Eastburg 2025 – A Plan for the Borough’s future
Comprehensive plans are a community’s opportunity to evaluate various facets of their municipality—jobs, housing, transportation, environment, etc.—and identify adjustments needed to ensure the community remains a desirable place to live and work over the decades to come. (Click here) for a fact sheet about the planning effort.
Open House…still open online through June 23!
More than 100 people came to the Open House on Monday June 5 to see and hear about the recommendations that the Task Force and planning team have developed.
1. Which recommendation(s) are most likely to improve the community over the long term? Why.
2. Which recommendation(s) are you most hesitant to support? Why.
3. Were any critical issues missed? What is the issue and how do you feel it should be addressed?
4. Which one recommendation would you consider supporting with your personal or professional time, skills, knowledge or other resources?
The Task Force will review your feedback by mid summer and select first projects to recommend for 2018.
The draft plan will be posted here by August 1st for advance review before the formal review process occurs this fall.
