So, we are excited to announce the first of our City of Gary Comprehensive Planning meetings.  This will be a series of meetings.  We’ll have a better idea of how many there will be after the first meeting set for September 16th at 7PM at the Gary Community CenterIf you are a resident of Gary, one of our area farmers, teachers or a younger person who would like to have a say so it’s not just us “old folks” planning your future, please join us, have a cup of coffee and discuss what we, as residents, want Gary to look like in 5, 10 and 15 years.  *The repair of roads in need of repair and possible assessments will be discussed at the first meeting as we need to move quickly on that project.

Over the course of a the meetings, some of the subjects we will cover are: An Overview; Baseline Analysis; Goals & Objectives; Parks, Trails and Open Space Plan; Public Facilities Plan; Infrastructure Assessment (roads, water etc...); Future Land Use Plan (empty lots, Gary Pines etc...); Livability Plan (neighborhood, streets, recreation etc…) and finally, the Implementation Plan.
