Last month, the Wyoming City Council voted to open the 63-day public comment period for the master plan, Wyoming [re]Imagined.
To help residents learn more about the plan and have an opportunity to ask questions, the city is hosting eight open houses next week.
“We received input from the community, and it formed the foundation of the plan. Our community knows Wyoming and what it wants for our future,” Wyoming Mayor Jack Poll said. “They want to see things like affordable housing options and flourishing economic development and parks. Please join us at one of our open houses. You will have a chance to learn about the plan and provide us with the necessary feedback we need for a successful master plan.”
The eight open houses will take place from Sept. 28-Oct. 1 with some featured appearances from the Wyoming Police Department. All events are open to the public and require attendees to follow COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, including face coverings and physical distancing. They are:
- 11 a.m-2 p.m. Monday at Oriole Park featuring the WYPD K9 Unit
- 5-7 p.m. Monday at Lemery Park featuring WYPD Bicycle Unit
- 1-3 p.m. Tuesday at Wyoming Public Library
- 5-7 p.m. Tuesday at Marquette Park
- 9 a.m.-noon Wednesday at the Wyoming Senior Center
- 5-7 p.m. Wednesday at Southlawn Park featuring the WYPD K9 Unit
- 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday at Ideal Park
- 4-6 p.m. Thursday at Gezon Park
At the open house events, community members have another chance to provide input after the draft master plan was intentionally developed with community voice and needs at the forefront.
The 18-month process continues to involve residents, businesses, employees, developers and stakeholders who are guiding the content and priorities of the plan.
Each section of the draft plan details what community stakeholders and residents want to see in Wyoming’s future and how the collective vision will be implemented.
The draft of the Wyoming [re]Imagined master plan forms a framework for future growth and reinvestment in the city of Wyoming. Upon final approval, it will guide how the city will develop over the next 15 to 20 years.
