2015 Comprehensive Plan Nearing Completion

After a year of gathering information and meeting, interviewing and surveying Weldon Spring residents and business owners, the Planning Commission held a Public Hearing and presented the City’s 3rd Comprehensive Plan on Monday, April 6, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.  The 2015 Weldon Spring Comprehensive Plan is an update to the 2008 Comprehensive Plan.  It includes many of the same goals, objectives and land use policies of the current Plan.  The 2015 Plan Update includes an in-depth analysis of the latest demographic and socio-economic conditions, land use, transportation and environmental issues facing the city over the next 10 years.  

A common item of discussion was ‘preserving Weldon Spring’s rural character and natural beauty and providing the means and motivation necessary to create a city-wide system of trails, paths and sidewalks’. Other discussion items include the concept of redefining the establishment of a Village Center and Old Town area to provide strategic opportunities for the future development of a well-planned mixed use development with public gathering areas.

The planning process strives for an orderly, open approach to determine local needs, setting goals and priorities, and developing a guide for action. It is important to include a representative cross section of the community. Planning is also place-based in that the process strives to build on the unique qualities of a community. The 2015 Weldon Spring Comprehensive Plan is the “product” of 12 months of planning and the distillation of data, citizen-defined values and recommendations.  

Having a solid well thought out plan in place can provide a framework for making informed decisions. Planning & Zoning Commissioners relay on the comprehensive plan for making decisions regarding rezoning, infrastructure, planning and annexing additional territory into the city. “A comprehensive plan provides a rational guide to assist elected and appointed officials in making informed decisions regarding land use development, preservation, transportation and trails” said Todd Streiler, City Planner.
