The City of Marco Island Community Affairs Department has created a website to make citizen participation in the process easy and convenient. The Planning Board encourages feedback on the current Plan’s goals, objectives and policies. The website will allow registered users to comment on individual policies, and to view the comments of others.
Two of the main objectives of periodic review of the City’s Comprehensive Plan are:
An evaluation of how goals, objectives and policies have worked over the past several years – have they been effective?
An assessment of whether current and future Conditions and Circumstances suggest additions or changes to the Plan – what is your vision for the City?
The information contained on the interactive website is a work in progress…. And that’s the point. The first section, the “Future Land Use Element”, is ready for review and comment. Additional elements will be rolled out periodically. Comments will be conveyed by staff to the Planning Board from time to time. Staff will then further add to the comment section. We expect this on-line conversation to last up to one year.
Note that the text itself is current language from the Plan as last amended in 2007.
