On The Table event on Oct. 2

Oct 1, 2018

The City’s Planning Department invites residents to participate in the On the Table Georgetown event on Oct. 2 as part of the public input process for the 2030 Comprehensive Plan update.

The City and its community partners are asking residents to put all their ideas for the future of Georgetown on the table. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your voice in the 2030 Plan, which will be a roadmap to guide the City’s growth and future development decisions.

“This process helps guide the City’s land development decisions and set the vision for Georgetown. This is a great opportunity for residents across the city to give input on the future of our great city,” Mayor Dale Ross said.

On the Table Georgetown is a citywide engagement effort that will allow residents from across the City of Georgetown to participate in small group discussions all on the same day, at any location. The City is asking the public to bring the discussion to their own tables, collect input from their peers and report it back.

“On The Table conversations will bring the opinions of individuals and businesses to the attention of those leaders who are directly involved with the strategic vision for Georgetown,” said Jim Johnson, Georgetown Chamber of Commerce president.

On Tuesday, Oct. 2, everyone in Georgetown is invited to host a conversation with up to 12 of their friends and neighbors. Conversations can be hosted anywhere: homes, restaurants, coffee shops, schools, libraries, offices, parks, or places of worship. Residents participating in National Night Out are also encouraged to consider hosting an On The Table discussion before, during or after their gathering.

Several community organizations, including the Georgetown Health Foundation, the chamber, Southeast Georgetown Community Council, Georgetown Ministerial Alliance, and Southwestern University, will be hosting multiple discussion groups open to the public. Times and locations can be found at 2030.georgetown.org/how-do-i-get-involved/ott.

Teachers and students at several Georgetown ISD schools will also be engaging in discussions throughout the day.

“We believe that community engagement enhances the educational experience of our students, and On the Table is a perfect opportunity for students to share their ideas and have a voice in the community where they live and play,” GISD Superintendent Fred Brent said. “We’re proud to participate in this event and support our city partners in planning for the future.”
