Langley residents should weigh in on comp plan

Editor,

As an engaged citizen of our community, I am calling on my fellow Langley residents to review the final draft of the comprehensive plan, just recently posted on the city’s website: www.langleywa.org/Langley_Comp_Plan_2013.pdf

I feel it is imperative that the residents help guide the direction of our city’s growth and that our local government be responsive to our concerns. We would do well to remember the wisdom of Jane Jacobs, who proved that city planning works best when done from the ground up, not from the top down.

There will be an open house on Oct. 30 from 5–6:30 p.m. at City Hall.

This is a welcome step toward transparency. If Langley is destined for increased densification and mixed use neighborhoods, zoning changes must be supported by the residents who currently live here.
