Troy Planning Commission to Review Draft Comprehensive Plan



The Collar City is nearing the completion of the community’s Comprehensive Plan, a guide for municipal decision-making, investment, development, and land use planning in Troy. Mayor Patrick Madden announced the City’s Planning Commission will conduct the first of two public hearings of the Realize Troy Comprehensive Plan – the City’s first in over 50 years. The special Planning Committee Meeting originally scheduled for February 7th to review the Draft Comprehensive Plan will be rescheduled to Wednesday February 21, 2018 at 6:00 PM at Troy City Hall.

Mayor Madden said, “Civic engagement is a core component of strong and resilient communities, and the next phase of approval for the Realize Troy comprehensive plan is the direct result of contributions from passionate community members to shape the future of our City. As we approach the end of this important process, we will continue to explore and implement new ways to strengthen our neighborhoods, expand our downtown, and invest in our waterfront by engaging our residents to best position Troy for prosperity and success in the 21st century.”

The Realize Troy Comprehensive Plan provides a framework to guide new development and transformation in the City over the next 25 years and beyond. The result of a three-year dialogue with the broad community aimed at determining community goals and aspirations, the plan seeks to guide positive change in the City of Troy through policies, actions and strategies that address contemporary issues and opportunities to create a healthier, more prosperous and sustainable city. The City of Troy’s previous Comprehensive Plan was completed in 1962 and was the first planning and policy document to guide growth and development in the community.
