The city's Master Plan website, which features information about the strategic planning process to identify new opportunities for city development and improvements, is up and running.
According to a news release from the Chamber, visitors will find a recap of the first public meeting from July 21. The summary includes a list of points of pride, identified problems, identity and characteristics of the city and desired development features, including thoughts such as “vacant structures are visible, but arts are invisible, so why not combine the two?”
