ARCHBOLD COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
HELP US TO PLAN ARCHBOLD!
Community officials have started the process to update the community’s comprehensive plan, and we need your help.
You can start doing your part to plan Archbold by taking a community survey that can be found by clicking here: https://s.zoomerang.com/r/ArchboldCommunitySurvey
What is the purpose of a Comprehensive Plan & why is it important?
The purpose of the comprehensive plan is to create a shared vision for the community to preserve and build on its heritage while giving direction for desirable growth and development. The entire process will take roughly one year and be ready for adoption in February 2021 or thereabouts.
The Comprehensive Plan will provide the community officials, residents and decision makers with guidance in the following areas:
*Community Services & Facilities (schools, library, etc.)
*Economic Development and Downtown Revitalization
*Future Land Use and Zoning
*Infrastructure (water/sewer capacity, and other utilities)
*Parks, Recreation and Open Space
*Transportation and Connectivity (streets, parking, bicycle and pedestrian mobility)
*Plan Implementation (getting stuff done and holding people accountable)
There’s many ways to participate:
An interactive public process has been developed to help the community frame goals and strategies of the Comprehensive Plan. Community forums will be held throughout the process. These forums will incorporate planning exercise, such as round-table discussions, mapping and visioning exercises, surveys, and poll-based data collection. The first community forum will be held March 30, at 6:30 pm in the Archbold High School Cafeteria.
If you have any questions concerning the planning process or on ways you can participate, please contact Village Administrator Donna Dettling by email, email@example.com, or by phone, (419)445-4726.
