Master Plan Update Proposed

City Revising Growth Guidelines
The City of Central will hold a “Planning Open House” to receive public input on efforts to change Central’s Master Plan. This is the second in a series of meetings called for by Mayor Shelton to update Central’s Master Plan, which was fully implemented in 2014. Mayor Shelton has previously stated his desire to “make this city grow”, and changing the Master Plan is a part of that process.
The open house style meeting will be held at Kristenwood Reception Center at 14025 Greenwell Springs Road from 4 to 7 pm on Monday, January 29th. Participants will have opportunities to give feedback and provide comments and suggestions on potential changes to Central’s Master Plan. There will be a ten-minute formal presentation at 6:15 pm with no opportunity for questions from citizens.
The first public meeting was held in November where Steve Villavaso, the planner hired by Mayor Shelton to revise Central’s Master Plan, explained how the revision process would work and answered questions from the public. The great majority of public comment by citizens in attendance emphasized a desire not to change Central’s Master Plan until the city identifies and implements solutions for drainage problems which may prevent local flooding.
The final proposed changes to Central’s Master Plan are expected to be completed later in 2018 and be presented to Central’s seven-member Planning Commission for possible adoption. (See page 2 for editorial comment.)
