Comprehensive Plan Update Review
Monday, May 15, 2017, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Location: Town Hall
Agenda: Communicate updates to the Jamestown Comprehensive Plan

New draft chapters are ready for review by residents (see below). Comments and suggestions are welcome. If you have images to share, please do!

A comprehensive plan is a framework and guide for accomplishing community aspirations and intentions. It includes goals and policies and recommends courses of action for future growth and development of land, public facilities, public services, and environmental protection. It is used as a reference when the Town government makes decisions in regard to these areas.

Jamestown’s current plan is the 1981 Comprehensive Plan. While many concepts and views discussed in the 1981 plan are still applicable, others are outdated. It’s time for an update. What’s been done so far:

  • The 1981 plan has been reviewed and the outdated items (things that have already been done, statistics, etc.) have been updated. Information from the recent planning efforts have been incorporated into the new draft chapters.
  • The information from the numerous planning processes that have occurred over the past three years have been consolidated with the sections of the 1981 Comprehensive Plan that are still applicable.
  • A number of the Community Planning Groups (from the Long-Term Recovery Plan process) met on their specific topic area to discuss if anything else needs to be added or if anything needs modified.
  • The full draft plan has been prepared and is open for review and comment.

Comments are welcome at any time during the update. Comments can be provided to Millissa Berry at Town Hall (between 9:30 AM and 4 PM), 303-449-1806, or at

The Town Board is getting summaries of the chapters at its regular board meetings (the first Monday of the month). Ideally, the comprehensive plan update will be accepted by the Board by July 2017.

Thanks for your participation! Your feedback is wanted and welcome!
