City seeking input on the future land use and annexation guide for Tyler 1st Plan

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) -  As part of the Tyler 1st comprehensive planning process, the City of Tyler is seeking input from residents about the Future Land Use and Annexation Guide in our community.  Residents may provide input:

·  By taking a quick survey on the City of Tyler website. Go to www.Tyler1st.org.

·  At a Public Open House from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 17 at Tyler Development Center Conference Room, 423 West Ferguson. 

The purpose of the survey and public open house is to seek citizen input on the importance and quality of the Future Land Use and Annexation Guide. City officials will analyze the input and incorporate the 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.

To view the original Tyler 21 Plan, visit: www.Tyler1st.org.

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. 

“The Steering Committee has already reviewed Vision, Principles, Parks, Open Space, and Lakes, and Transportation elements of the plan.” said City Planner Heather Nick.  “Getting citizen input is critical to ensuring the plan reflects the vision of the entire community.”

Tyler 1st addresses issues such as downtown revitalization, historic preservation, parks and recreation, transportation, housing and neighborhoods. For more information on Tyler 1st, visit the City of Tyler web site or www.Tyler1st.org.
