Envision Garland Public Hearing #3

When:  Monday, January 24 2011 @ 7 p.m.
Where:  Garland City Hall, 200 North Fifth Street, Council Chamber
The Garland Plan Commission will host its third public hearing on the Envision Garland comprehensive plan at their Monday, January 24, 2011 regular meeting.  Garland residents, property owners, business owners, and other community stakeholders are invited to participate.
This is the latest of a series of public hearings that have been scheduled to gather community input on Envision Garland.  Future public hearings will be advertised and posted as they are scheduled.  Garland residents, business owners, and community stakeholders are invited to read the Envision Garland draft plan, and offer their comments during one of the series of public hearings that will be held on this topic. 
The City of Garland is legally required to have and maintain a comprehensive plan.  Envision Garland is the update to the current plan which dates back to the 1980s.  Envision Garland does not impact current zoning regulations or property usage.
Garland citizens and the City of Garland have been working together on Envision Garland for more than two years.  Several hundred Garland stakeholders have participated in the formulation of Envision Garland.  Their hopes and vision for our community’s future have been sought by the City through surveys, community workshops, and other public outreach activities.  Local Garland stakeholder input and vision is the foundation of Envision Garland, and that public support has been invaluable.
The complete Envision Garland document is available for reading or download at http://www.envisiongarland.org/.  Hard copies are available for viewing at Garland City Hall (in the City Secretary’s Office), at all Garland Library branches, and at the Main Street Municipal Building (Planning Department, Second Floor).
