The City of Tyler seeks public input about the future of Tyler's Downtown

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX)- As part of the Tyler 1st comprehensive planning process, the City of Tyler is seeking input from residents about the future of Tyler's Downtown.

Residents may provide input in two ways. 

First the can take a quick survey on the City of Tyler website at www.Tyler1st.org. Second, citizens can attend a Public Open House on August 27 at the Gallery Main Street, 110 W. Erwin St., from 5:30- 6 p.m.

The purpose of the survey and public open house is to seek citizen input on the importance and quality of Downtown. City officials will analyze the input and incorporate citizen feedback into their decision process during the Tyler 1st Comprehensive Plan update.

Tyler 1st is the City's comprehensive plan. It was originally adopted by the City Council on Nov. 14, 2007 after nearly 18 months of community involvement and input.

This 20-year plan created a strategic framework for future actions for the City and defines a vision for the future linked to overall goals and policies. The plan contains strategies and action items for achieving the goals.

The plan calls for annual reports to City Council on the status of implementation as well as a comprehensive review every three to five years to revisit the vision, goals and principles.

A steering committee has been appointed by Mayor Barbara Bass to oversee this five-year update to the plan. The committee is meeting monthly to review each chapter of the plan and to determine what revisions are needed to align the plan with changing community dynamics.
