Reimagining Our Westmoreland
The Department of Planning & Development has received tremendous community response to the initial phases of the Comprehensive Plan update, Reimagining Our Westmoreland. More than 2,000 community members have participated in outreach activities thus far, which have included nearly a dozen community workshops, online questionnaires, and an online interactive mapping tool.

Those who live and work in the county, who have not done so already, are encouraged to participate in online surveys and upcoming community workshops:

Following this initial phase of community workshops and online outreach, the public will be invited for additional community input activities that will help shape the Plan. In the spring of 2017, the County will host a Priority Issues Workshop. This workshop will allow for more focused discussion and examination of the top issues, concerns, and priorities identified during the initial outreach process.

In the summer of 2017, the community will be invited back to weigh in on potential planning scenarios at the Alternative Strategies Workshop. This interactive workshop will present strategies developed in response to the priority issues and is designed to allow for real-time public feedback using keypad polling technology. The alternative strategies workshop will also be available as an online tool.
