Committee hosts public hearing on Comp Plan draft

Hearing set for 6 p.m., April 11 in Council Chambers

LITTLE ELM (March 20, 2017) A committee of 14 Town residents has spent considerable time and effort in completing a revision of the Little Elm Comprehensive Plan, and the plan draft is now ready for public review and input.

                An open public hearing on the 2017 edition of the Comprehensive Plan is scheduled for Tuesday, April 11 in the Council Chambers, 100 West Eldorado Parkway, starting at 6 p.m.

                The Comprehensive Plan, sometimes referred to as the Comp Plan, provides an in-depth view of the Town in its present form, and looks a decade into the future, providing a potential framework for what Little Elm may look like in the long-term.

                Work on the Comp Plan is essentially on-going, with annual staff and citizen reviews, resulting in either reaffirmations of the plan’s direction or changes to it, depending on the most current circumstances.

                Hosting the public hearing is the 14-member Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC), which seeks  resident input on the current iteration of the plan.

                CPAC members include Mayor David Hillock, Mayor Pro Tem Michael McClelland, Council member Neil Blais and community members Casey Russell, Donovan Draayer, Mustali Carbaidwala, Steve McGee, Lauren Lindquist, and Jeff Jacobson who represent the six Town Council districts. 

                Also on the CPAC are Brian Rawlins, Asher Bradshaw, and Rod Luther of the Planning and Zoning Commission, Will Gentry of the Little Elm Economic Development Corporation, and Erin Mudie, representing homeowner associations.

                The 259-page plan includes six chapters, covering Community Snapshot, Visioning, Livability, Future Land Use, Transportation, Growth, Public Facilities, and Implementation.

                Residents are invited to read the plan by following this link:  https://issuu.com/townoflittleelm/docs/town_comprehensive_plan_draft.

                Comments can be made at the April 11 public hearing or residents can submit comments via email to Town Engineer Kimberly Brawner at kbrawner@littleelm.org.
