Public input is key in planning for large retail stores

Editor:

The City Planning Board will hold one more meeting to solicit public input for developing land-use policies for large format retail establishments.

This meeting will be this Thursday, April 26, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., in the Community Room at the City-County Complex.

This effort is focused on very large retail stores, typically between 50,000 and 100,000 square feet. These establishments can make huge impacts on small towns, and it is important we work proactively to protect our unique community. On issues like this, the most important element is public input, to ensure any resulting policies reflect our community’s values. Public input is critical to this effort.

We would like to thank those who provided input at the last meeting, and look forward to hearing additional opinions from our citizens.

Adam Stern
Livingston Planning Board chairman
