SHARE YOUR IDEAS.

A critical component of FORWARD Kosciusko County was engagement- whether in person or online.  During the process, this virtual page was used to ask you about the community’s assets, challenges, and future aspirations. 

PUBLIC REVIEW SESSIONS

The FORWARD Kosciusko County planning team will host a series of four online open-house meetings to solicit input from the public on the preliminary recommendations for land use, transportation, utilities, trails, parks, and community facilities/programs that were generated as part of the County’s comprehensive planning effort. 

Due to the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the four public workshops will be held online using the Zoom platform. Each session will feature the same presentation content, so residents are encouraged to attend the meeting that fits their schedule the best. Each session will include an introductory presentation as well as a Q&A session to discuss resident questions, concerns and ides.  

LAND USE AND GROWTH DEVELOPMENT SCENARIOS

To gain additional input on the scenarios we encourage you to review the information provided below and provide your comments and questions using the linked survey forms. 

The maps, graphics and corresponding comment form were also provided as a part of our public open houses held on November 15 in Syracuse and November 17 held in Mentone.

VISION, GOALS AND OBJECTIVE REVIEW
