The City of Morgantown will hold a community forum for “Future Study Area No. 16” on Monday, August 20, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Marilla Center, located at 799 East Brockway Ave.

The Development Services Department is kicking off a neighborhood-level, grass-roots Small Area Plan for “Study Area No. 16”, which is located along Powell Avenue near Marilla Park. This plan will address land use, transportation, and a variety of other topics. Strategies developed in this plan will advance the goals, objectives, strategies, and consistency principles of the City of Morgantown Comprehensive Plan towards enhancing the quality of life in and around “Study Area No. 16”.

The City of Morgantown’s Comprehensive Plan includes “Areas for Future Study”. These are places where the existing zoning does not align with the existing land uses or the existing pattern of development. It may also be an area where the existing zoning is not compatible with or does not fully support the desired future of the area as indicated in the Comprehensive Plan’s Land Management Map. These areas require further land use and development study by the Planning Commission to enable zoning map amendment and/or zoning text amendment recommendations to City Council that will advance the goals, objectives, strategies, and consistency principles of this Comprehensive Plan update. The community forum is open to the public and all are welcome to attend and participate.
