Pathway plan almost ready for review


Electric City’s Pathway and Revitalization plan is about three-fourths of the way complete, and should be ready for review within a few weeks, the city council learned last week.

The plan is being developed by a Washington State University group made up of a team of students and Assistant Professor Kathleen Ryan from the WSU Rural Communities Design Initiative.

The WSU team has been working on the plan since last spring, including conducting two public meetings and issuing a preliminary report.

When completed, the plan will be reviewed by City Clerk Jackie Perman, Deputy Clerk Russell Powers and the city’s planner, Kirk Danison.

The plan will also be reviewed by a select community group that has an advisory mission with the city.

A community workshop will provide the public a chance to review and make comments on the plan, followed later by a public hearing. After the public hearing a 30-day review period will occur before going to the full council for action.

The plan, which includes parks, sidewalks, and an Ice Age Flood Trail system, has been panned heavily by some residents in the city who have objected to a trail going past their properties.

The city has stated that the revitalization plan will be a separate document that will become part of Electric City’s Comprehensive Plan.
