"Plan The Parcel" Conceptual Land Use Planning

The Conceptual Land Use Planning process for the Parcel is expected to take place from April to December 2019 and is divided into 5 stages:

  • Project Initiation (April/May): The Parcel Development Team will establish communication strategies, Public Outreach Plan, and will review Previous Site Planning documents. 
  • Development Objectives (May-July): The Team will conduct small group public interest interviews and facilitate the first of three joint work sessions between the Town Council and the Planning and Economic Development Commission. 
  • Land Use Plan Concept Alternatives (July/Aug): The Parcel Development Team will facilitate a four-day public charrette aimed at producing effective land use concept alternatives based on community feedback. 
  • Preferred Conceptual Land Use Plan (Aug-Oct): Based on community feedback, the Parcel Development Team will produce one preferred conceptual land use plan, which will be presented at the second of three joint work sessions between the Town Council and the Planning and Economic Development Commission. 
  • Final Conceptual Land Use Plan (Nov/Dec): Based on continued community feedback, the Parcel Development Team will produce one final conceptual land use plan, which will be presented at the third of three joint work sessions between the Town Council and the Planning and Economic Development Commission.
