Comp plan project leaders launch community survey

The survey will be open through June 21 and will capture wider community input

Agnew::Beck, in coordination with the Homer-based comprehensive plan project leaders, have launched an online community survey on the comp plan project website. The survey will be open through June 21 for Homer-area residents of all ages, and is intended to capture a wider range of community input and facilitate feedback from individuals who are unable to attend in-person comp plan events.

“The information, ideas, and concerns you share will help shape future decisions about land use, transportation, public facilities and services, economic development, housing, and related infrastructure and programs in Homer over the next 20 years,” the survey states.

Responses received from the community survey will contribute to the Homer Comprehensive Plan rewrite, according to the project website. Responses are submitted directly to the Agnew::Beck consultant team, who will collect and later share summarized results.

The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete, according to the project website, and provides a range of multiple choice or short answer questions intended to gather information on Homer’s values, strengths, current challenges, visions, goals and priorities.

The survey also offers an option at the end to provide any other questions, comments or concerns that may not have been addressed in the provided questions.

The second community visit will take place May 13-16.

Currently, open hours with the comp plan project team are scheduled in the Homer Public Library conference room on Tuesday, May 14 from 1-4 p.m., Wednesday, May 15 from 10 a.m. to noon and Thursday, May 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Community members are invited to stop by the library anytime during these open hours to learn about the comprehension planning process and how their ideas will help shape the revised comprehensive plan, learn about what the project team has learned and heard in the process so far, and share community input and ideas.

Further details on the second community visit will be forthcoming on the comp plan website.
