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… [cont.]
