As Cowlitz County begins the process for updating its Comprehensive Plan, they’re also starting the process of going out to the county’s citizens, asking what they think the vision for Cowlitz County should be. Steve Harvey with the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments says that a citizen-led steering committee is now starting the outreach effort, asking three basic questions of Cowlitz County’s citizens. The three questions are as follows: What are the best things about living in Cowlitz County? What are residents most concerned about? What do residents want to see happen here? The committee plans to have booths at local community fairs, and will be speaking at meetings of city councils, chambers of commerce, civic and service groups, senior centers and other community events. In addition, there’s also an on-line survey, available on the plan’s website at www.mycowlitz.com/liveworkplay. Harvey says that they’re planning to gather public input through the summer, then in October, a draft vision statement and some overall county goals will be presented. Following that, it’s expected to take about two years to complete the revision of the county’s Comprehensive Plan. More details are available from the Council of Governments at 577-3041.
