Town Hall Meetings on Silver City Comprehensive Plan

Town of Silver City to Update Comprehensive Plan

Community Development Department Holding Input Meetings by District

It’s that time again. The Town of Silver City is overdue for an update of the 2004 Comprehensive Plan, a tool to guide how our community will grow in the future, to protect important assets and resources, and to address our town’s problems. State law requires that the Town have an updated Comprehensive Plan in order to be eligible for Community Development Block Grants.

But more than a check mark on a list of grant requirements, the Comprehensive Plan is a critical driver in implementing the Town’s priorities, shaping land use, transportation, economic development, and our environment and quality of life.

The Silver City Community Development Department will be holding meetings to gather input for the revision to the Comprehensive Plan. GRIP encourages you to attend the meeting for your district and identify problems you see in your neighborhood, provide feedback on the Town’s existing plans and policies, and offer ideas you have to improve the Town and quality of life for its residents.

As you consider your input, here are some key principles for guiding growth to keep in mind:

  • Develop a diverse and sustainable regional economy
  • Protect historic downtown and neighborhoods
  • Preserve and enhance the quality of the natural environment, open space, water and other resources
  • Maintain and improve community facilities, parks, open space and recreational opportunities
  • Protect Silver City’s unique character
  • Maintain Town’s cultural diversity and protect historic traditions
