The Comprehensive Plan for Garrett County is getting a face-lift and the public was invited to participate last night at Garrett College.
A "Visioning" session asked for public input and suggestions to update the decade-old plan. The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to establish target goals and establish milestones with a vision for County development as a whole.
Attendees were asked to rate what they felt was most important to them and make suggestions if certain areas were left unaddressed. Initial priorities were collected from County stakeholders to stimulate conversation. (pictured above)
Representatives from Garrett County Planning and Land Management, and two consulting firms, AECOM and Downstream Strategies, facilitated participation with four stations that invited input from county residents.
Future sessions are planned but not yet scheduled. You can visit the County site for updates. What's important to you as the Garrett County Comprehensive Plan is under reconstruction? See what components are included in a county plan. VIEW OUTLINE
