City of Sequim to host Comprehensive Plan workshops

Sequim leaders are looking for input as they prepare for the next two decades.

The City of Sequim has begun work on the update of the required 20-year Comprehensive Plan and is seeking community input at three days of Comprehensive Plan Workshops scheduled for Tuesday, June 11-Thursday, June 13, held at the Guy Cole Event Center in Carrie Blake Community Park, 144 N. Blake Ave.

The workshops, city representatives said, are designed to refine planning goals, explore options for Sequim’s future, and generate creative solutions through interactive exercises, displays, and interactions with the consultant team and city staff.

Studio sessions are designed to be informal, and community members can come by at any time to join in the conversation or listen.

Workshops, with themes, include:

• Tuesday, June 11 — “Vision”

2-5 p.m. — Studio session to review the existing vision and generate ways to improve it by speaking with consultants and city staff, exploring displays and maps, sharing ideas and feedback, and participating in a “mini-poll” questionnaire.
