The Plan Commission reviewed and provided insight on the Comprehensive Plan's recommendations for several elements on January 14, including transportation, parks, and economic development. Materials from this session, and previous work, can be found at the Town's Smart Growth Website. The next session will be on February 11 at 4:15 pm - we hope to see you there.

Recommendations Workshop Next Week

As part of its Smart Growth Comprehensive Planning process, the Town of Beloit is inviting people who live, work, play, rent, or own property in the Town to join in a focused presentation and discussion on recommended actions, policies, and programs that the community will pursue with respect to its Comprehensive “Smart Growth” Plan. The meeting, to be held on Wednesday, January 14 at the Beloit Town Hall, is to be hosted by the Town Plan Commission and will be facilitated by professional planners from R.H. Batterman & Company, a Town of Beloit-based Surveying, Engineering, and Planning firm since 1917. Over the course of several meetings, the Town has come together to focus on important long-range issues such parks, transportation, and economic development, and will illustrate and discuss strategies for addressing these issues at the January 14 meeting.
