South Meridian Visioning

 Permanent link   All Posts

By Caleb Hood

Do you want to be involved in planning for the future of South Meridian?  Do you have a vision of where subdivisions, parks, schools and other land uses should be located? If so, I’d like to invite you to a February 22nd community workshop at Mary McPherson Elementary School, 1050 E. Amity Road. During this workshop, participants will be asked to designate future land uses for property south of I-84, west of Linder, and north of Lake Hazel—about 9 square miles! Land use scenarios that are composed during the workshop will then be analyzed and reported back at a second workshop on April 3rd at City Hall.

 

During the February workshop, participants will be asked to plan for the long-range future of the area, not just a few years out, by playing a land use board game called “You are the Map!” Participants will arrange square game pieces (representing 40-acre land uses) on a gridded map to help determine future land uses, development patterns and densities. Working in small groups and with the support of staff, participants will have the opportunity to put ideas to paper and tell the City what they’d like to see for South Meridian into the future. This planning and outreach process is designed for residents, property owners, businesses, developers, and other stakeholders to have a say in what the future for South Meridian entails.

 

The goal of this process is to create a map of future land uses for inclusion in the Comprehensive Plan – the City’s “guide” for promoting and evaluating new development proposals. To ensure that in 50 years great spaces exist, that people have a variety of nice places to live and work, appropriate services are provided, and that South Meridian is an enviable and attractive destination to live, work and play we need your help. Please consider joining your neighbors on Wednesday, February 22nd, 6:30 p.m. at Mary McPherson Elementary.
