The Elizabethtown Comprehensive planning committee is seeking input from town residents in the return of the surveys they recently sent out.
According to the committee, the Comprehensive Plan is a plan that reflects the voices and the opinions of the Elizabethtown community and its citizens.
Members of the community, who want to have a say in the Town’s future, develop the comprehensive plan.
“Let’s work together to make a great town even better – Its time to get involved,” a committee press release said. “ If you haven’t already done so, please send you Elizabethtown Survey in, this is your first opportunity to help formulate the plan. Then, Join us on Saturday, Aug. 18, from 9 a.m. to noon at the UCC Parish Hall for our first Comprehensive Planning workshop, where we will work together to collect input, suggestions and opinions.”
Also according to the committee, a town with a Comprehensive Plan has a better chance of securing State and Federal Grant money for community projects. New Businesses are more likely to come to a Town that has a positive vision of the future. The plan provides guidelines for Town officials who make decisions about the town’s future. The Plan also protects the Town from outside forces that could bring about unwanted changes in our Town.
