Get Ready for Ranson’s Next Steps: August workshop to lay groundwork

Jul 11, 2011

On August 2 at the Independent Fire Company across from City Hall (note this is a new location), the City of Ranson and its consulting team welcome citizens and business people to a community conversation about building the future of Ranson.

The evening workshop will help set the agenda for a bigger event September 8-14, when the city, the team and citizens devote a week to customizing a model zoning approach for the entire city. To get the big picture of the process, check out the column to the immediate right.

During the August 2 session, we’ll meet together to discuss issues important to property owners, business folks, civic groups and others. We’ll also have city officials and staff present to listen to ideas, answer questions and focus attention on whatever gaps there might be between where we want to go and the policies and rules we need to get us there. Then, we’ll take what we learn and use that to shape the agenda for the September workshop.

So what are we going to talk about August 2? And how are those conversations going to plug into the week-long workshop in September?

First of all, we’ll want to nail down some of the essential components of Ranson’s character, the kinds of things we want to make sure we’re protecting and enhancing as we plan for the future. Then, we’ll want to explore the tools we need to do that so we’re channeling growth in ways that position us to make the most of opportunities and equip us for coping with the inevitable challenges of the next few decades.

So join us for this important conversation. It will go fast, because we can build on what we’ve learned over a century and because we’ve designed a collaborative process that will respect your schedules. Go to the SCHEDULE section in the toolbar above to see dates and times to participate in person. And don’t forget, even if you can’t attend events, you can follow and comment on the process here on this website.

    Ranson and Charles Town's next 100 years begin now.

    From September 8 through the 14th, we're charting the course for our next century. And everyone's invited.

    In an unprecedented week-long mega-workshop, city officials, residents, business community and a team of international consultants will be considering ideas and actions to help guide Ranson, Charles Town, and Jefferson County towards a future rich in opportunity for our families and businesses.



    The Ranson-Charles Town community has been selected by HUD, DOT and EPA to serve as a national model for how small rural cities on the fringe of a major metropolitan area can foster sustainable economic development, transit, and community livability through targeted and strategic planning and infrastructure investments.



    To facilitate this transformative change, planning funds are being used for the following linked and interdependent project components:

    + Develop a new zoning overlay district for downtown, as well as undeveloped, outlying areas of the Cities;

    + Redesign the Fairfax Boulevard-George Street Corridor into a "complete street" with green infrastructure, to promote a better transportation route for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit;

    + Design a new regional Charles Washington Commuter Center in downtown Charles Town that will facilitate access to regional rail and bus transit systems for Ranson, Charles Town and Jefferson County; and

    + Create a master plan for downtown Ranson that spurs job growth and economic development in former dilapidated manufacturing sites.

    It all starts with an opening presentation on September 8.

    “We couldn’t be happier about the way this process is shaping up,” says Ranson Mayor A. David Hamill. “It is our goal to continue evolving Ranson into a vibrant community where residents can live, work, and recreate within cohesive neighborhoods. Exciting things are beginning to happen, and I expect the next 12 to 18 months to be even more exciting as the real work begins to plan our future.”

    Come, and lend your voice. There'll be all kinds of ways to participate, even for events you can't attend in person. So don't miss it.
