The City of Oneonta, in partnership with the Otsego Industrial Development Agency, is preparing a Comprehensive Plan Update. As part of the planning process, the Steering Committee will be hosting a Community Open House on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at the Community Arts Network of Oneonta (CANO) Wilber Mansion located at 11 Ford Ave. Community members are encouraged to drop by the Open House anytime between 3:00 pm to 7:30 pm and contribute their ideas for the Plan.
The Open House format is designed so community members can stop by and spend as little or as much time as they want visiting a series of interactive stations that will be set up throughout the Wilber Mansion. Community members will be encouraged to use pens, markers and Post-It notes to provide comments on questions, share ideas and mark up maps. If participants would like to have a discussion about a particular topic, concern or idea, representatives from Elan Planning and Design, the firm who is working with the City to develop the Plan, will be circulating throughout the room.
The goals of this project are to identify desired future land use patterns throughout the City, and to identify realistic opportunities for business investment. Input will be sought on all matters including downtown revitalization, rail yard development, and quality of life in the City of Oneonta.
