Public workshops continue this weekend to help shape city’s growth

by | Nov 17, 2020 | Latest

Online survey also available to gather citizen input

If you’d like to have a hand in shaping the future of Farmersville, city officials want your input.

As part of an information gathering process, the public has been invited to attend two workshops and offer feedback and opinions about how they’d like to see the city develop.

These “Come & Go Workshops” are designed to compile suggestions that will affect proposed amendments to the city’s Comprehensive Plan. The plan, dated January 2013, includes guidelines for land use, transportation and roads, trails, as well as, parks and open spaces.

An online survey is also available on the city’s website at this link.

Main Street Manager Kevin Casey wants citizens to get involved in the workshops. 

“The city absolutely encourages input from the citizens,” said Casey. “Their input will be gathered on the first day of the workshop and taken into consideration. Farmersville is their city and we strive to make sure every voice is heard.”

The first workshop was held November 14 and information that was gathered will be shared at the second workshop on November 21.

Casey suggested that the public review the city’s Future Land Use, Proposed Thoroughfare Map and Bike Trail Map, all available on the city’s website, https://www.farmersvilletx.com/newslist.php.

While reviewing the information he said it’s important for citizens to make notes and form questions they can then bring to the workshops.

The second “Come & Go Workshops” will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday and will be held at Tatum Elementary Cafeteria, 405 N. Washington St.
