Warwick residents, business owners and persons that work in the city have only two more weeks to participate in the Comprehensive Plan Update Survey, which is currently posted online at www.warwickcompplan.com. It can also be found on the Warwick Beacon website: warwickonline.com.
Residents and business owners are strongly encouraged to visit the website and complete the survey.
“We want as many residents and business people as possible to share their ideas about what Warwick should focus on during the next 10 to 20 years,” said Warwick Planning Director William DePasquale in a statement. “The priorities that emerge from the survey and citywide meetings will help to shape our plan update.”
The survey focuses on specific issues and priorities concerning housing and neighborhoods, economic development, mobility and transportation, and parks and open space.
To date, more than 500 residents and business owners have completed the survey, which is composed of 35 questions and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. DePasquale said he is pleased with the overall response to the survey and hopes that residents and business owners will stay involved in the process. DePasquale also strongly encourages residents to sign up for automatic e-mail updates at www.warwickcompplan.com. Additionally, the city is utilizing popular social media platforms Facebook and Twitter to distribute update information.
Over the last eight months the City Planning Department and the lead consultant Goody Clancy & Associates have conducted nine Ward-based topical meetings, two citywide meetings on the environment and transportation, and have held several meetings with the business community. Over the course of the next six months there will be additional opportunities to participate in the comprehensive plan update process through citywide forums that have yet to be scheduled.
