Sequim looking for public "vision" on growth

November 15th, 2013 - 5:36am

(SEQUIM)-- The City of Sequim is seeking citizen input to help determine how the city will grow. City officials are planning for that growth and want a city that accommodates change and provides affordable service.

City officials refer to it as “Sequim 120”, the Comprehensive Plan update process, and it's now progressing into its second phase. The city has a projected growth of 3,000 new residents in the next 20 years.

Chris Hugo, says it's called Sequim Vision 120.

The first phase of the program created a vision statement for the next 20 years of growth, but didn't address specifics. That's the purpose of phase two.

Participation opportunities for phase two include Public Workshops on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Sequim Transit Center, 190 West Cedar Street. A second and third event will take place Friday, December 6, 2013 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. at 167 West Washington Street. Participants may stop by the Open House events at their convenience. They will receive an overview of the community vision then work on one or more individual preference assignments designed to give direction for land use and development.

The Sequim 120 Vision Statement was adopted by the Sequim City Council on August 27, 2012.
