Public’s Attendance Is Needed for the Next Stage of Henderson’s Vision Plan and Comprehensive Plan

As the next stages of the Vision Henderson process continue to move forward, Henderson’s Planning Commission is in the process of creating a new Comprehensive Plan and the City of Henderson is finalizing the Vision Henderson Plan, implementing steps identified as part of the outline.

Planning consultants, Taylor Siefker Williams Design Group, continue to work closely with the City of Henderson on the visioning process, facilitating once again a series of meetings beginning March 12, 2015; the Vision Henderson Steering Committee (a 29 person committee representing all facets of the community) will meet on March 12 at 2:00 p.m. on the third floor (the Assembly Room) of the Henderson Municipal Center (222 First Street, Henderson, KY) to discuss the updated Vision Plan. They will also be making a recommendation for the Vision Plan adoption to the Henderson City Commission at a future date.

A Public Open House will follow the meeting on March 12 on the third floor (the Assembly Room) of the Henderson Municipal Center, to allow the public once again the opportunity to stay up to date with the process by reviewing/commenting on the Vision Plan and also provide comments on the Comprehensive Plan’s goals and objectives. Once the Comprehensive Plan is completed, it will define the quantity, quality, and location of growth that the community desires and will include specific action steps needed to implement the Vision Plan. The open house will begin at 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. A short presentation of the Comprehensive Plan’s goals and objectives will take place at 6:00 p.m., including an interactive survey. All who attend are welcome to stay for the entire session or if you choose to stop by for a few minutes any input will be helpful for the betterment of Henderson’s future.

Public Invited to Open House to View Henderson’s Initial Vision and Comprehensive Plan

The City of Henderson has created a draft Vision Plan and the Henderson City/County Planning Commission is updating the Comprehensive Plan to help the betterment of the community economically, educationally, and so forth. These plans are being led by city/county staff members, a 29 person Visioning Steering Committee representing all facets of the community, and Taylor, Siefker, Williams Design Group, planning group based in Indianapolis and Louisville. However, the public’s voice and opinions have been crucial throughout the visioning development in order for any of Henderson’s future plans to come to fruition.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend the January 26, 2015 Vision Henderson Open House at the Fine Arts Center, Henderson Community College (2660 S. Green Street, Henderson, Kentucky) to give their input on the initial Vision Plan and future development policies and actions. The Vision Plan was created by community citizens, leaders, and officials who attended public visioning sessions, focus groups, one on one interviews, online/ mailing surveys, presentation gatherings, etc.

Henderson’s Comprehensive Plan will be completed in the Spring of 2015, which will provide policy and direction for future growth and development within Henderson County. It will define the quantity, quality, and location of growth that the community desires and will include specific action steps need to implement both the Vision Plan and Comprehensive Plan.

The Vision Henderson Open House will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will last until 7:30 p.m. with a short overview presentation beginning at 6:00 p.m. During this time the public will be offered free food and refreshments, while viewing the Vision Plan and giving their input on the findings/ strategies thus far. Whether you stay for 2 hours or 20 minutes, your attendance and support will be much appreciated and will help Henderson County’s future for the next 10+ years.
