Join planners from Scott, Bourbon, Clark, and Barren counties for a discussion forum on Comprehensive Planning in small and mid-sized Kentucky communities. This session focuses on 1) what has worked, 2) what has not worked, and 3) lingering questions. We will examine what we wish we’d known before starting and discuss when and why it may be appropriate to hire an outside consultant.
Attendees will gain understanding of the Comprehensive Plan research and update processes used in several county-wide plans throughout the state of Kentucky.
A series of discussion questions will allow panelists and attendees to share successes and failures. Questions to be addressed include:
1. What is something that worked well in your Comp Plan process?
2. What didn’t work so well?
3. Are there things you wish you knew earlier in your process?
4. What would you change when you begin your next update/write your next plan?
5. Did you write your plan in house or use a consultant? Did you split tasks? If so, what are your take-aways from this experience? If not, do you think you’d make changes on your next update?
6. What were the best ways you engaged the local citizens?
7. Did you have any strong opposition to your plan? Your process? If so, please describe the issue and the way you handled it.
8. Open Q&A from the attendees
Attendees will be asked to participate in answers and solutions to common problems.
This session is geared toward smaller, to mid-sized community planning departments, and rural land use planning concerns.
