Growth Policy update Nov. 4, 2019
The City of Livingston has begun a process to update to the 2017 Growth Policy. The City seeks to update the Growth Policy to reflect the needs and desires of the community and to provide meaningful guidance for the City for future land use decisions. On October 1, 2019, the City Commission passed a resolution to hire Burton Planning Services (the consultant) to perform the update.
Major steps will include collecting and analyzing information pertinent to all facets of the Growth Policy such as economy, housing, land use, local services, population, public facilities, natural resources, transportation, intergovernmental coordination, policies and regulations, and more. The consultant and the City are meeting this week to kick off the Growth Policy Update process. The City Commission will hear from the consultant at 5:30 PM, November 5 in the City – County Complex at 414 East Callender Street, where they will discuss the update process in detail. The process will continue through September 2020 when adoption is anticipated. In the meantime, opportunities will be available to provide input on goals and components of the Growth Policy.Look and listen for the launch of an interactive website where you will be able to review the progress of the Growth Policy Update and sign up to receive updates, a social media presence, information in your utility bills, and a public survey.
