Comprehensive Plan public comment period underway

The City of West Plains launched a Comprehensive Plan process to provide the community with a vision and plan that will be used to guide decision-making and development. The Plan will be used to guide the decision-making process concerning land-use development and redevelopment, as well as the planning of neighborhoods, commercial corridors, trails, and public open spaces. This plan will also inform decisions regarding transportation and mobility, city infrastructure, and housing diversity.

Over the last several months, the City of West Plains held a public survey, youth and business/development community meetings, a visioning workshop, a citywide planning charrette, a pop-up event, and an online virtual public open house to gather public input to inform the plan. Now, the city is publishing the draft plan recommendations for public comment from June 28 through July 12 at Once you log into the site there will be instructions on how to access. This is the community’s plan and the city hopes all residents will share their comments online.
