The City of Olivia is starting work on its new Comprehensive Plan by launching the plan’s website, collecting community ideas for the city’s future, and inviting residents to join the Project Steering Committee that will work with consultants to guide the work.
Olivia’s new Comprehensive Plan will help guide the city’s evolution over the next twenty years, and will include recommendations for land use, housing, business development, parks, transportation, and downtown vitality, among others. The new plan will provide a single, comprehensive umbrella that gathers recent initiatives and orients recommendations to match residents’ vision for the future. The plan’s completion is expected for October 2023.
The planning process will include numerous opportunities for residents to contribute their ideas and comments, both in-person and online. Online activities available now include a wide variety of tools and opportunities. Check out the project website below.
In-person public participation activities will begin in May 2022 and continue through the summer – including at this year’s Corn Capital Days.
The work of the plan will be managed by a Project Steering Committee (PSC) made up of residents, business owners and City staff. To increase representation, the City is seeking community members to join the PSC.
