The City of Ida Grove will be holding a Steering Committee meeting for the City’s Comprehensive Plan with assistance from Siouxland Interstate Metropolitan Planning Council (SIMPCO). The meeting will be held on Monday October 2nd at 5pm in the City Council Chambers.
The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to provide a current inventory of community resources and issues, and a thoughtful statement of the community’s vision and goals for the future. The Comprehensive Plan document provides legal justification for community decisions and ensures that local policies are in step with those of state, regional, and federal planning best practices. The plan can also inform grant applications and leverage funding for community projects. Finally, the comprehensive plan provides goals and action steps for the community to reach the stated community vision. The Comprehensive Plan includes inventory and analysis of the following planning topics: Housing, economic development, transportation, community facilities and services, land use, and natural resources.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
