What are your thoughts on the revised draft of the Flagstaff Regional Plan?
Council has made nearly 200 changes to the draft plan after 3 months of review and hundreds of comments from the public. Here are some of the major changes.
• The preference towards compact development has been replaced with a more holistic approach offering varied, market driven housing options.
• The original drafts lack of adequate focus and planning for automobile capacity has been addressed by an all of the above solution that includes addressing traffic concerns and auto capacity while also expanding alternate modes of transportation.
• Definitive language such as “require” and “shall” has been removed in favor of suggestive and encouraging language.
• A statement will be added to the beginning of the plan that this plan is a “vision” and that “the goals, policies, maps and illustrations in this plan do not preclude any property owner from exercising their development rights”.
Council will review these final changes Tuesday, December 17th, 7:00PM at City Hall. Public comment can also be made at this meeting.
