Comp Plan Kick-Off Meeting


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 12, 2021 



The City of Saco seeks public participation Jan. 21, 2021, at the first public forum for our new Comprehensive Plan. 


We have embarked on an 18-month process that will result in a new blueprint for the City's future, projected as the 2021 Comprehensive Plan. 


Following an RFP process, the City engaged with Stantec, an interdisciplinary firm whose purpose is to create and strengthen communities. 


At the December 14th meeting, the Saco City Council voted to create the Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC), which will oversee the comprehensive planning process. The LRPC will work closely with Stantec's consultants to synthesize the community's vision and incorporate community feedback into the Plan. 


Join us virtually on Jan. 21, 2021, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM for the first public forum for Saco’s 2021 Comprehensive Plan. 


At the Public Kick-Off Meeting, we will introduce the comprehensive planning process, review recent trends affecting Saco, discuss what they mean for its future, and start talking together about a shared community vision. 


There will be an interactive portion of the meeting to collect input from participants, and this will be mirrored with online activities available after the meeting. 


The meeting will be recorded and made available online afterward for those who cannot attend the event live.
