Council Maintains Priorities with Addition of Housing and Mobility for 2016
At its annual retreat on Jan. 30, the City Council decided to keep the same priority headings it had last year, but add in Housing and Mobility to its areas of emphasis under The Built Environment. For 2016, the Council's priorities are now: The Built Environment: Housing, Parking, Livability and Mobility; Infrastructure, Completing the Comprehensive Plan and Healthy City/Healthy Community. The Council also did a "dot" exercise as a way to indicate which of the 69 projects listed under the priorities (and some new ones were added to the list) were of special importance. While the exercise was meant to provide some indication of projects rising to the top, it was acknowledged that more conversations are needed as the Council’s work plan for the year evolves.
