Approximately 25 people joined City staff and Steering Committee members to learn about the project and provide feedback. A summary of the comments received is available here.

If you would like to comment on the project, you can download this form and submit via email, regular mail, or in person at City Hall.

A Steering Committee was established to serve as the primary sounding board to work through the planning process with city staff and members of the public to establish a development policy for the Highway 93 South Corridor.

The next steering committee meeting is scheduled for December 10 from 1- 4 pm at City Hall. All steering committee meetings are open to the public and public comment is taken at the end of each meeting. Meeting agendas, minutes, and presentations will be posted below as they become available.
