Among the topics to be discussed by the Board of Supervisors’ Community Development Committee meeting on Wednesday, March 14, will be the proposed Active Living and Healthy Neighborhoods section of the 2017-2037 Comprehensive Plan.
The Board voted to adopt the plan last month, but decided to
refer the proposed Chapter 4 – “Active Living and Healthy Neighborhoods” – to
the Board’s Community Development Committee for further consideration.
“Active Living and Healthy Neighborhoods” was a new component of the Plan that developed from recommendations made by the Board’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Connectivity Engagement Committee. As explained by Planning Director David Maloney, it is meant to encourage amenities such as walking trails and bike paths where they are feasible, without being mandatory.
The Community Development Committee, which consists of three Board members supported by staff, has the assignment of determining “the appropriate routes and paths needed to guide effective implementation.”
The March 14 meeting will be held in the Emergency
Communications Training Room in the E911 Center, located at 7501 Library Drive. The
meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m.
