The Aberdeen planning commission will be holding a special public meeting on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. on the third floor of Aberdeen city hall.

A press release from Community Development Director Lisa Scott on Friday said, “At this meeting, we will discuss the city of Aberdeen’s proposed changes to the 2001 comprehensive land use map. The planning commission, prior to making a recommendation to the Aberdeen city council, wants to get your feedback and will be taking public comments during this meeting.”

The land use map revision is the first step toward guiding the city in developing a new comprehensive land use plan in 2019.

A Comprehensive Plan is a long-range plan for growth, change and improvements for the next 20 years. It is used to manage the location of population and job growth, land development, conservation and related public investments in infrastructure (such as streets, sidewalks and parks).

A Comprehensive Plan sets guidelines for community involvement in future plans and decisions impacting the city. It is used by city staff and the public to advocate for projects and programs during the annual budget process. A Comprehensive Plan is a shared plan for the future that is used to coordinate policies and actions across City departments.

Please contact Lisa Scott for further information at (360) 537-3238 or [email protected] or send written correspondence to the community development department, 200 East Market Street, Aberdeen, Washington 98520-5242.
