2nd Quarter Update
In Q2, two public meetings were conducted on the Comprehensive Land Use Plan Update project. Additionally, there was a Joint Meeting of the City Council, Planning & Zoning Commission, and DeSoto Development Corporation (no quorum of the DDC was available) conducted on February 20, 2023. At the Joint Meeting, AECOM presented the baseline analysis (population, etc.), the housing needs analysis, and the draft vision and goals. Staff is currently exploring an increase in the scope of work to be performed by the project's vendor to add additional reporting and community engagement, public meetings, surveys, an urban design update, and an economic development section to the Comprehensive Land Use Plan project.
