The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) is collaborating with Police Commissioner Muldrow at his upcoming Community Forum for a discussion on comprehensive planning priorities for the future of policing in York City.
The forum will be at 6 p.m. Monday, May 1, at Stillmeadow Church of the Nazarene, 350 Chestnut Street. As DECD works to finalize the City’s Comprehensive Plan it is important to receive and incorporate community input.
The Comprehensive Plan is a policy document that provides guidance for future growth and development in the City. It translates community values and vision into policies that direct growth in the quality of life, intensity and diversity of land use, transportation modes, street planning, public facilities and services, parks and recreation, and resource lands/critical areas.
Commissioner Muldrow typically hosts this community forum on the first Monday of each month as an opportunity for the public to express ideas and concerns to the York City Police Department and other city officials. This special forum will serve as an input opportunity on the future of crime and policing as it relates to the Comprehensive Plan.
Discussion topics will cover:
- Reducing violent crime
- Addressing drug-related issues and quality-of-life concerns
- Continuing to advance the community’s relationship with the police department
The Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Code (MPC) requires the adoption of a Comprehensive Plan that identifies areas where growth and development will occur so that a full range of public infrastructure can be adequately planned as needed to accommodate growth.
We invite you to participate in the process.
