February CPAC Meeting
The Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) met for the final time on February 17th to provide valuable input to city staff and the plan consultant on the Comprehensive Plan.
During the meeting members of the CPAC were presented with the draft Land Use section of the plan which gave them a chance to learn about how land use designations can guide the development and growth for the future of Baytown.
Following this the group participated in an activity to evaluate the draft Future Land Use Map, which is a map that assigns the land within the city into categories that define the expected and desired future use of land in the city. This is used to help inform decision making and direct development to meet the desired version of the community in the future. The group discussed with city staff their initial reactions to the land use designations and in what ways they wanted to see the city develop in the future. This discussion provided great insight into the the citizen perspective on the future of Baytown.
The planning process for the Comprehensive Plan may be approaching the end, but there is still opportunity for citizens to be involved in helping to shape the final draft of the plan.
The draft plan will be presented at the March 15th Planning & Zoning Commission at 5:00 PM at City Hall giving all residents a chance to learn more and ask questions.
Prior to this meeting the draft plan will be available online for anyone to review and leave comments on. Keep an eye on Baytown Engage and this page for the latest updates!
