On August 17, 2020, City Council passed a resolution for Wyoming [re]Imagined, the City of Wyoming’s proposed master plan, to officially begin its 63-day public comment period required by State law before consideration for adoption. The Plan is the product of a 14-month planning process, which included public engagement with residents, the business community, and community stakeholders to discuss how to “reimagine” the future of the City.
The Plan highlights the desire of the community to create more neighborhood-oriented commercial centers that are mixed use and pedestrian-friendly, as well as a thriving, walkable city center along 28th Street that offers a diverse range of retail, service, and housing options. The Plan also provides direction for economic development within the City, including growth strategies for commercial corridors, business parks, and industrial areas. Further, it addresses how the City should prepare for long term growth by providing more affordable and diverse housing options through higher density residential development. Parks and open space, transportation and mobility, and community facilities and infrastructure are other topics covered by the Plan.
The 63-day public comment period for the proposed draft will include multiple opportunities to gain input from community members, including small workshop that are to be held throughout the City. At the end of this comment period, the Steering Committee will review the final draft, which will then be sent to City Council at the end of the year for approval and adoption.
