Comprehensive Plan Subcommittees will be broken down into the following topic areas:
The Vision Work Group
The vision work group is proposed to consist of 100 or more people. This large diverse group would be made up of youth and adults representing Allen County / Fort Wayne's population. This group, which will include the Steering Committee members, will meet three times starting during the planning process.
Plan Element Work Groups
These work groups are to be more informal and are proposed to be structured and guided by the consultant but facilitated by County/City planning staffs. These groups will provide important input into the plan based on the following plan elements:
- Land Use
- Public and Private Facilities
- Community Facilities
- Economic Development
- Environmental Stewardship
Groups are proposed to consist of 5 to 10 members each and represent varying community interests. Membership could include builders/developers, neighborhood representatives, environmentalists, social service agencies, transportation planners, business owners, etc. These groups will meet several times during the Visioning and Data Gathering phases of the plan and will be given the task of identifying issues, providing guidance, and assisting in the development of data and maps for their specific plan element area.
