Oak Harbor asks for additional input on comprehensive plan

OAK HARBOR – The Village of Oak Harbor is once again reaching out to the community, seeking feedback for the development of a new Comprehensive Community Plan. As announced in early 2023, Oak Harbor — in partnership with the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee — is looking to create a fresh shared vision for the community. This vision aims to preserve and build upon its heritage while also providing guidance for desirable growth, redevelopment, and the implementation of important priorities.

This second survey has been developed using responses from the first survey, in which over 300 residents provided feedback about the necessary improvements to downtown, parks, streets, and quality of life.

The village aims to reveal and formally adopt the new plan in Spring 2024. Once finalized, this plan will serve as a valuable resource, offering guidance to community officials, residents, and decision-makers.

The survey can be accessed online at surveymonkey.com/r/OH_community_preferences_survey?fbclid=IwAR3GtYjkRV1ZEOb4dWZ4_Xe4-vldomg9UZhPfeXoJt5SKBuNrqWFDIamOR8.
