Upcoming Public Engagement Opportunities

Impact of COVID-19
Due to social distancing guidelines put in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19, more emphasis has been placed on virtual engagement opportunities.

Online Workshop #1 | March 29 – April 12

This first engagement opportunity was intended to introduce the planning process and serve as our baseline assessment. Participants learned about the process by watching a quick video. Then, the project team worked to understand level of satisfaction among participants with how things are TODAY in order to plan for the FUTURE.

Some of the key questions we worked to answer included:

  • What’s your vision for the future?
  • What is Lawrenceburg doing well?
  • What does Lawrenceburg need to improve?
  • How can Lawrenceburg activate its riverfront?

Community Survey | Early May

The community survey focused on vetting the draft vision statement and diving deeper into the unique opportunities and challenges of downtown, US 50 corridor, and the hillside. The project team will had draft goal statements developed and ready for public input.

Community Workshop #2 – July

The second community workshop provided the public with an opportunity to review the draft strategies and helped prioritize the recommendations prior to reviewing the complete draft plan.

Public Review of Draft Plan | October

The complete draft plan is now available for public review. The plan will be introduced to the Plan Commission at the November 3rd Plan Commission meeting at 6 pm.
