The public is invited to participate in Temple City’s first General Plan Community Meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015 at Live Oak Park Community Center (10144 Bogue St.). Attendees will receive a short presentation on the project’s status, followed by an interactive mapping activity to share input for future development.
The current General Plan update process marks the City’s first comprehensive update of the document since 1987. Over the next two years, the project will involve ongoing community dialogue on topics such as new development, transportation, housing, open space, noise, safety, and conservation.
A 12-member General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) has been formed to help facilitate the process. Recently, the GPAC approved a vision statement and seven guiding principles for the General Plan—quality of life, community character, a vital economy, community programs and facilities, a “greener” community, a health and safe environment, and responsive government.
The new plan will also integrate findings and community input gathered from other recent planning exercises including the Strategic Plan, Parks and Open Space Master Plan and Traffic Calming Master Plan. Ultimately, discussions will inform the development of a comprehensive blueprint that establishes a vision for the city’s future.
Attendees are asked to arrive early to sign in. Registration opens at 6:45 p.m. with the workshop beginning promptly at 7.
