The City of Galesburg is hosting two workshops to gain insight and input for the City’s Comprehensive Plan and Parks & Recreation Master Plan. The purpose of these two workshops is to allow community members to express their comments and concerns about the City. Community outreach and engagement is a vital part of the planning process and input received from community members will be used for the creation of the Galesburg Comprehensive Plan and Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
 
The Community Workshop is open to all Galesburg residents to provide input about the priority issues, actions, and assets in the City. The focus of the workshop will be on both the Comprehensive Plan and Parks and Recreation Master Plan. It will be held on Tuesday, June 20 at 7:30 pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
 
The Business Workshop is geared towards individuals that own or manage businesses in the City, as their perspective is particularly unique to market and development issues. This workshop will focus solely on the Comprehensive Plan and will be held on Wednesday, June 21 at 7:30 am in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
 
Public input is critical to ensuring the plans developed address the issues and needs of the community and these workshops are an opportunity for all community members to share ideas and concerns.

About the Comprehensive Plan
The Galesburg Comprehensive Plan update is the blueprint for the City’s future. It is a community vision, intended to guide Galesburg for the next 10-20 years. The Comprehensive Plan will result in a set of policies that direct future growth and development as laid forth by the community. Additionally, the creation of a Plan can lead to potential strategies that will help effectively guide City leaders with making substantive and thoughtful decisions for the community. 

About the Parks & Recreation Master Plan
The Parks & Recreation Master Plan helps guide the growth and preservation of existing and new City parks and natural areas. It also provides strategies to create linkages for existing, proposed, and future biking/walking trails within the community.
