This is BIG!The Envision Montgomery 2040 Steering Committee will present its draft Comprehensive Plan for the city of Montgomery during the Community Choices Open House on October 16th, from 6 to 8 PM at City Hall. The draft plan represents a 15-month effort to develop the city’s first comprehensive plan in more than 50 years and includes the input of more than 1,000 Montgomerians.

Where do we start?

On October 16th, the Envision Montgomery 2040 Steering Committee will host an Open House to reveal the draft Comprehensive Plan. The public are invited to attend the event and provide feedback on the plan vision, goals and recommendations. Attendees will be asked to review the draft through a series of large presentation boards following a presentation from Mayor Todd Strange, City Planning Director Robert Smith and the consultant team. Participants will contribute directly to the Comprehensive Planning process by offering their insights and priorities into key community issues related to mobility, housing, education and land development. This is a unique opportunity to help shape the final set of policies and guiding vision that will direct Montgomery for decades to come. If you care about the future of Montgomery, make plans to attend the Open House and rally your friends, neighbors, and family to do the same.

Why attend the Open House? Because this plan needs your input! 

The Open House is a special opportunity for you, the citizens of Montgomery, to become directly involved in the finalization of comprehensive plan.This plan will lead the community forward for years to come. The process is led by a 48-member Steering Committee representing a wide variety of community interests. They have committed to a community-driven process where you will inspire, shape and, ultimately affirm the final plan.

What will happen at the Open House? The Open House presentation will begin promptly at 6:00 PM and last 30 minutes. Attendees are encouraged to attend the presentation if possible, but are also permitted to drop in any time during the session. This is an important opportunity for the public to engage directly with the draft plan and share their priorities with the Steering Committee, City Staff and the Planning Team. 
Do I have to be an expert to contribute ideas? Absolutely not! By living, working, or raising a family in Montgomery, you know so much about this community. Your intuition is vital to the Plan’s success. Whether you’re just moving to the community or a fourth generation life-long resident, your perspective is important.
How will my input be used? When you contribute an idea to the Envision Montgomery 2040, you are contributing directly to the Comprehensive Plan. Depending on when you get involved, your ideas could serve as the foundation for the community’s vision statement, contribute to one of the Plan’s goals, inspire a specific action (like a new project, policy, or program), or set the course for implementation. Each comment will be recorded, databased, categorized, and analyzed by the Planning Team. This process will be documented in summary memos after each engagement round.
