The Planning and Zoning Board of the city of Newberry will meet at 6 p.m. on Jan. 19 to gather public comment concerning future planning of the city and its existing Comprehensive Plan.
The meeting will be held in the City Commission Meeting Room, Newberry City Hall, 25440 Newberry Road.
The city's comprehensive plan is preparing for its evaluation and appraisal, which takes place once every seven years to determine needed amendments to the overall plan. The evaluation and appraisal is due to be completed by April 2011.
The board, which also serves as Newberry's local planning agency, invites city residents to participate in one of several interest groups that are forming on the following topics: schools and public facilities, long-range capital improvements and economic development, transportation and land use, conservation and recreation, and housing and intergovernmental coordination.
A copy of the comprehensive plan is available for public inspection at the City of Newberry Planning Department, 25815 S.W. Second Ave., Newberry, or online (as Appendix A) at http://library8.municode.com/default-test/home.htm?infobase=13872&doc_action=whatsnew.
