A Perspective by Nancy Johnson, TEAM CEO
We begin an important journey today. Punta Gorda is planning to rewrite the Citywide Master Plan. The City is planning to do it with maximum engagement from the community. To that end, Council has just completed selection of the consulting firm that will manage the process. This time around, an economic development analysis and recommendations for updating our land development regulations are also part of the process. This is really the right way to go. It’s important to understand that the City could rewrite this plan at any time without gathering any citizen input. They have a staff of urban planners, and could just go and develop a plan, and let us know the outcome later. The fact that they have once again chosen to invest in a public engagement process speaks volumes for our current leadership. Read Nancy Johnson’s historical perspective
The City of Punta Gorda and TEAM Punta Gorda have released preliminary details for a free event they are holding, “ Punta Gorda: Journey to the Future .” The purpose of this event is to provide information to participants equipping them to more effectively contribute to the city’s creation of an updated Citywide Master Plan.
