When Hamilton's City Planner Matthew Rohrbach settled into his job, he started examining the 2015 Hamilton Growth Plan. And since then, he's been developing what is called "Envision Hamilton," with input from the town's residents and officials, and watching the unexpected developments that is causing him to seek some adjustments to that 7-year-old vision of the future.

He told KLYQ that much of the 2015 growth policy has been preserved, and that Envision Hamilton "is not a regulatory document; it's a guiding policy document...And it helps us think about where we put infrastructure and how we plan for those infrastructure improvements in a cost-effective way."

The Planning Department's draft proposal will be online this weekend at Envision Hamilton.com. Then, Rohrbach and Assistant Planner Mark Rud will be busy, presenting details to the public in a variety of ways over the next few weeks, starting next week with two-hour sessions at City Hall Community Room June 14 at 8 a.m., 12 Noon and 4 p.m.
