Master plan survey deadline extended


The deadline for the second Saratoga master plan survey, conducted by Community Builders, Inc. (CBI) has been extended to Jan. 15. According to Bobbe Fitzhugh, of CBI, the deadline was extended because of a lack of participation during the holidays.

“We want to make sure everyone that wants to fill out the survey has the opportunity to do that,” said Fitzhugh. Right now, CBI has gathered about 75 responses compared to approximately 150 total from the first survey. While the number itself does not matter as much as that all interested community members have contributed their input, CBI has reason to believe that there may be some interested in contributing that have not had a chance yet because of the holiday season.

After the surveys have been completed, CBI will host a public hearing on Jan. 21 at the Platte Valley Community Center (PVCC). The hearing will be a last chance opportunity for anyone interested in providing input to see what others are saying and add their own ideas on transportation, healthcare, economic development, infrastructure and mapping. “It’ll be a meeting right before we come out with the preliminary draft of the master plan itself,” Fitzhugh said.

After the public hearing, the next time CBI addresses the public will be a presentation of the preliminary draft of the master plan.

A link to the survey can be found at the Saratoga/Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce and town of Saratoga websites, with hard copies available at PVCC and Saratoga Town Hall. According to Fitzhugh, they hope to receive at least 25 more completed surveys for optimal results.
