This summer the Department of City Planning (DCP) will begin a conversation with community members and stakeholders about the City’s upcoming update to the Community Plans for the West Valley. These conversations will inform and drive how the City balances needed growth with necessary protections for single family home neighborhoods. Councilmember Blumenfield is working with DCP to ensure that the community plan update process is open, transparent and inclusive. Every step of the way West Valley residents must have an opportunity to stand up and make their voices heard. Few things stir more emotion than decisions about development in our neighborhoods, and Blumenfield wants all of the communities in the West Valley to have all of the information needed to understand and shape the process.
Blumenfield explained, “We who live in the West Valley love our communities and the updating of the plans must reflect our collective values, priorities, and vision.”
Throughout the summer there will be meetings led by the DCP in the West Valley specifically regarding the Community Plans, continuing the dialogue on the needs future of the West Valley.
