On Wednesday, September 23rd, the Copperton Planning Commission voted (3 yes, 1 abstain) to recommend approval of the 2020 Copperton General Plan to the Council. This is an exciting step, as the 2020 Plan is Copperton’s only General Plan update since 2012 and the first plan since Copperton incorporated as a metro township in 2017. The Copperton Metro Township Council will vote on adoption of the General Plan, with or without the Planning Commission’s suggested changes, on October 21st, 2020, at the regularly scheduled Council meeting. Copperton’s General Plan has been underway since June of 2019. Fifteen steering committee meetings, two surveys, three community events/workshops, and regular updates to the Council contributed to the plan’s creation. The 2020 Plan is data-driven, centers on authentic public engagement, and provides implementable goals. Find the draft plan here.
