City asking residents for input in new comprehensive plan
The City of Mustang is asking for the community’s help in planning for the city’s future.
This month in utility bills, residents will receive a survey asking for input in the city’s new “Imagine Mustang” Comprehensive Plan.
Community Development Director Melissa Helsel encourages residents to be on the lookout for the survey and submit it by the Nov. 1 deadline.
The survey asks residents to give feedback based on their personal perspective. Twenty questions are listed including asking residents what the city’s character is, what future economic developments are needed and views on quality of life.
“Your personal perspective about the City of Mustang, it’s current developments, transportation systems and open space areas will give valuable insight into the context of Mustang as a city and the potential Mustang has moving forward into the future,” the survey reads. “Your responses will be used to help us IMAGINE MUSTANG’s future.”
This weekend, Halff Associates, the city’s consultant for the comprehensive plan, will have a booth set up at Western Days outside of Town Center collecting input from citizens and answering questions about the process. Residents are urged to stop by.
Then in October, the city will host a two-day public input meeting on Oct. 5-6 at Town Center. “People can come and go and give feedback about the plan,” Helsel said. “There will be a presentation both Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7 p.m., and the daytime meetings will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.”
Surveys should be returned to City Hall by Nov. 1. They may be emailed to [email protected], faxed to 376-1152, send in with your utility bill or dropped off.
