A final draft of Langley’s comprehensive plan has been posted for public review on the city’s website.

The comprehensive plan is the road map of Langley’s future and regular updates are required by state law. The comprehensive plan includes several different elements, including land use, housing, transportation, utilities and capital facilities, parks and open spaces, sustainability and economic development.

City Planner Brigid Reynolds provided a report to the Langley City Council during its meeting on Oct. 2. The planning department has been working on the comprehensive plan since February 2015 with the Planning Advisory Board, Langley City Council and interested community members. She said one of the biggest focuses of the plan has been finding ways to create more affordable housing units, a process that has involved talks with the city’s Planning Advisory Board.

Visit the community planning and building department section on the City of Langley’s website at www.langley.wa.org for a full breakdown of the comprehensive plan. It includes links to each element that was discussed throughout the two-year process.

A public open house to discuss and analyze the plan is also set for sometime later this month.
