Summer 2018: In June, the parish hosted three workshops to collect input from residents in locations across the parish. Through mapping exercises and discussion, residents shared their thoughts on development and visions for the future of the parish. Next, the planning team digitized all the maps from the June workshops, pulling information from each chip placed by residents.
Fall 2018: Using the digital results from the map chips and other input, planners created a range of scenarios for growth. These scenarios conceptualize different ways development in the parish could look. In September 2018, the parish hosted two open houses for public input on the scenarios. The results of the scenario open houses support planners in producing an overall vision. This draft vision will be presented for public viewing and feedback at two open houses in late November 2018.
Winter 2018: Planners finalize the vision after incorporating feedback. In turn, the Planning Commission and Parish Council will review the vision at the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019.
Spring 2019: The vision will inform a draft Master Land Use Plan and implementation policies, and opportunities will continue for residents to give their feedback on the draft plan.
