Galesburg Community Invited to Participate in Sub‐Areas Workshop

January 16, 2018 02:10 PM
The City of Galesburg Planning Division is hosting a Sub‐Areas Workshop to gain insight and input for the City’s Comprehensive Plan update. The intent of this workshop is to achieve consensus on the vision, direction, and priorities in four identified sub‐areas of the community. These areas are generally described as the North Henderson Street, South Henderson Street, Downtown/Main Street, and Grand Avenue corridors. 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 detailed sub‐area plans that will be part of the overall Comprehensive Plan.

The workshop will be open to residents, property and business owners and anyone interested in these sub‐areas. It will be held on Wednesday, January 31 at 5:30 pm at the Galesburg Public Library, 40 East Simmons Street, Galesburg.
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.
