Auke Bay Plan
Auke Bay Vision
Building on the ideas brought forward during the January 6, 2014 Steering Committee meeting, we are seeking input and feedback on various example Vision Statements for the Auke Bay Plan. The Vision Statement will guide this planning effort, and will provide direction to the work. A short survey was available through February 10, 2014. Survey results are being evaluated by members of the steering committee and members of the public who have provided us with their contact information and requested to be kept informed as the project moved forward. The results of this evaluation process will become a final vision survey that will be available on this web page as soon as possible (staff apologizes for the continuing delay in getting this survey posted).

Please note that the memorandum that was distributed for the November 12, 2013 Planning Commission meeting, and available through this link on or before November 14, 2013, was missing pages 18-30; these pages include some of the responses to Question 8 and all of the responses to Question 9.
