A public open house to get feedback from the community about the City of Brighton’s comprehensive master plan is set for 4-8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 2, at the BEEC Building at 125 S. Church St.
The process of updating the city’s comprehensive plan was kicked off earlier this year at a joint meeting of the planning commission, city council, and downtown development authority. Giffels Webster, the planning firm overseeing the process, has started gathering data and preparing draft documents for public viewing; these documents are available on the city’s master plan portal.
Analyzing existing conditions and public input throughout the planing process go into the comprehensive master plan, which also includes a recreation plan, complete streets plan, and downtown development plan. From the master plan, the city will pursue strategic community policies and priorities.
To help guide the process, the City of Brighton is encouraging community members to give their input. An interactive story map, prepared by Giffels Webster, allows people to upload photos of Brighton from a computer, laptop, or phone, and then tag them on a map of the city and share comments. The tool was designed to encourage a more interactive discussion about the community. These images and comments gathered from this tool will be discussed at the open house.
