City of Utica Master Plan Meeting Scheduled for West Utica Neighborhood / 6.17.09

Mayor RoefaroUTICA, NY – As part of the City of Utica Master Plan development process, a series of neighborhood meetings are now in progress. The next meeting scheduled is for the West Utica neighborhood area and will be held on Wednesday, July 22nd at 7:00 pm in the Holy Trinity-Lincoln Academy Cafeteria.

City Councilman James Zecca, and Tim Trent, who is a member of the City’s Community Master Plan Steering Committee, said residents of that neighborhood are welcome to attend the session to discuss goals for the future of the city, particularly relating to the West Utica neighborhood.

A community master plan provides a conceptual vision for the growth and development of the city. It takes into account the goals the community wants to achieve, and outlines the actions that are needed to achieve those objectives.

The City of Utica’s master planning process is focused on neighborhood redevelopment. The West Utica neighborhood discussion will focus on what residents of that area would like to see happen in terms of growth, change, development, and retaining the character of the neighborhood.

The City’s economic development staff, consultant team and steering committee are engaging in discussions across the city to gather information that will help formulate the final plan document. The final plan will address a number of elements, including:

- land use and development patterns
- transportation, gateways, and corridors
- green infrastructure
- downtown redevelopment
- housing development
- transformative projects
- strategies for implementation

The outcome of the process is a written vision directing all development activities. It is an all-inclusive approach to addressing future growth. The master plan document that results can then be used as a policy guide for the city’s decisions about the development of the community.

Questions regarding the West Utica neighborhood meeting should be directed to Tim Trent at 733-5591. Questions about the City’s master plan process can be referred to Brian Thomas, Director of Urban Planning, at City Hall, at 792-0181.
