The Trenton250 Phase II Master Plan Briefs are now available for public comment through Monday August 15, 2016. A “brief” is a shorter version of the final Topic-Focused Report (also called an Element) that will be presented to the public for adoption. The brief clearly identifies the goals associated with each topic area as well as the strategies for achieving those goals. What makes these documents “Briefs” is that they do not include a detailed explanation of every Action, but instead summarizes all actions at the end of the documents. The “Key Actions” section can be used like a glossary. The explanations for each action are placed at the end of the document because they are often mentioned in more than one strategy. The City understands that residents, business owners, elected officials, and stakeholders have a limited amount of time to review these documents. A shorter “top-level” presentation of recommendation should allow more people to read and comment on the City’s overall approach to addressing its goals. The City would like to ensure that it has support for or disagreement about strategies before writing detailed explanations of all the actions. Moreover, presenting information in this way allows residents and stakeholders to make recommendations on additions or changes before a first draft of the Topic-Focused Reports are complete. The Following Briefs are available for Public Comments through Monday August 15, 2016:
- Circulation Report Brief
- Economic Development Report Brief
- Education Report Brief
- Environmental Report Brief
- Health and Food Systems Report Brief
- Housing Report Brief
