A comprehensive plan is more than just a document disclosing Oakmont’s past and present land use trends with a proposed course of action for the next decade or so. It is one vital tool for our community to effectively realize our own best vision our future.
It is a process.
The Borough’s Comprehensive Plan exists to support Oakmont’s long-range planning, its development and revitalization vision. It establishes goals to guide decisions on funding, community character, commerce, infrastructure, and quality of life.
It creates a blueprint for our land use patterns of tomorrow. Community planning is an organized way or process of thinking about tomorrow. By thinking about how Oakmont changed in the past can help predict what changes might be in store for our future. When this type of thinking translates into action, it needs to be done in an orderly fashion and made part of a routine administrative process. If we do not plan for our future, then the community where we work, live and play may ultimately fail to adapt to change and miss opportunities.
WE GREATLY VALUE YOUR FEEDBACK (AGAIN)
It’s questionnaire time again!!!
The response to the Borough’s initial survey for updating the 2011 Comprehensive Plan was wonderful and we thank you.
The Borough collected the public’s feedback from the initial questionnaire along with input from Borough leadership and a variety of community stakeholder groups. Together, these voices directed updates to the existing Plan’s action list.
As a result from gathering all the feedback, new actions for the Plan were formulated, existing actions contained within the existing Plan were updated or revised, and other existing actions from the current Plan remained unchanged as they are still relevant moving forward.
The following topics and related actions in this second questionnaire are SELECTION of the entire list and IS NOT exhaustive. These select actions are highlighted because they represent an area of emphasis for either stakeholder groups or the public. The purpose of this questionnaire is to help the Borough prioritize these key actions.
We appreciate your feedback. Thank you!
