Invitation to attend a Special P and Z Workshop regarding the draft Evaluation and Appraisal Report
You are invited to attend a Special P and Z Workshop, which will be held by the City of Cape Coral Planning and Zoning Commission on May 23rd, 2012. The meeting will begin at 9:00am in Council Chambers at City Hall (1015 Cultural Park Blvd). The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the draft version of the 2012 Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR).
The EAR is intended to assess the progress of implementing the Comprehensive Plan, to respond to changes in growth management policy, to reflect changing conditions and trends, and to identify “major issues” that have emerged since the last update of the Comprehensive Plan. Overall, the EAR evaluates the successes and shortcomings of the Comprehensive Plan and helps to identify needed amendments.
Last spring, the City obtained input from the public to identify major issues present in the community. Through a series of public workshops and an online questionnaire, the City identified and evaluated three major issues: increased diversification of the local economy, livability within the City, and natural environment and sustainability. The EAR analyzed each of these major issues and provided an assessment of each element within the Comprehensive Plan.
The City welcomes any feedback regarding the draft version of the EAR to be directed to EARinfo@capecoral.net. Please visit www.PlanTheCape.net for more information about the 2012 EAR.
Time/Date: 9AM on May 23rd, 2012
Where: Council Chambers at City Hall (1015 Cultural Park Blvd.)
