Creating or Revising Neighborhood Plans
The Johnson City Regional Planning Commission woks with key community organizations such as neighborhood associations in leading the process for creating or revising neighborhood and Small Area Plans, with the technical and professional input of City staff and the support of the Johnson City Board of Commissioners. The purpose of neighborhood plans is to:
- Provide a process for community engagement that gives an opportunity for citizens, especially those resident or owning businesses and properties in a particular area of the City to discuss and establish priorities for the future growth and development of the area consistent with the Johnson City Comprehensive Plan
- Respond to specific land use, social, economic, utilities, streets, housing, etc needs in an area of the City
- Create a strong vision and associated policies and strategic actions for new developments and reinvestments in an area
- Articulate a vision and policies that will guide growth and development in an area
- Synthesize existing and overlapping plans applicable to an area
- Update old small area plans to respond to physical, social, economic, etc changes that an area has been subjected to over time.
While broad based community participation is important, it is very essential that the neighborhood association be fully engaged in the plan making and implementation process.
To engage the City in the making or revision of a plan of your neighborhood, or on matters concerning an existing neighborhood plan, contact the Planning Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (423) 434-6249.
