Public Input Sought for Prescott General Plan Update

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

The City of Prescott is seeking public input on the General Plan update, which is anticipated to be on the November 4th ballot for voter consideration.

The Prescott General Plan is an expression of our community's preferred future. The vision of the General Plan creates the foundation for future decisions on issues such as land use, circulation, open space, growth areas, environmental planning, cost of development, and water resources. These issues join together to shape Prescott's future economic development and community quality. The General Plan is important for many reasons as it is used to assist the City Council in prioritizing budget and capital fund allocations and to measure the direction of development trends in the community.

There are a few remaining opportunities for public input on the General Plan update at two upcoming Planning and Zoning Commission hearings:

  • March 27th at 9:00 a.m. at the Prescott Community Center, 1280 Rosser Street
  • April 10th at 9:00 a.m. at the City Council Chambers, 201 S. Cortez Street

Once the public hearings are completed, the City Council is scheduled to approve the proposed General Plan update by resolution in May in order for it to be placed on the November 4th ballot for voter consideration.

The City encourages everyone to attend the public hearings and read the Prescott General Plan and the draft update on our website at (click General Plan tab). There is information about the public process, meeting schedule, timeline, and the General Plan and update that is being considered for the November 4th ballot.
