CAC Recommendations Regarding the City of Beacon's 2007 Comprehensive Plan

The City of Beacon's CAC has reviewed the 2007 Comprehensive Plan and compiled a list of 16 topics that we would like to see addressed in the updated Comprehensive Plan to be approved in 2017. We want to ensure the protection of natural habitats, viewsheds, streams and forests, outdoor recreational areas, and other natural aspects of Beacon for the benefit of residents and visitors. We hope that the decisions the city makes moving forward on all topics, from zoning to infrastructure, are mutually beneficial to the needs of Beacon’s natural environment and human residents, and avoid any undue harm to Beacon’s natural beauty, resources, flora, and fauna.  You can read our recommendations here
