After sitting on the shelf for months, the city’s master plans will once again be up for discussion at the July 16 city council meeting.

The plans, which will shape how the city plans recreational growth over the next several decades, have been on hiatus as new City Building and Engineering Director Ken Irwin got up to speed on the six different documents, according to City Planner Joel Andrews.

The city is currently putting together master plans for how the city will develop parks, water, storm drains, public safety, wastewater treatment and transportation.

Irwin and the city staff are expected to have cost estimates on how much all of the building will cost over the next 60 years or so, according to Andrews.

The city is updating the master plans in conjunction with its revised General Plan, which the City Council approved last year. The process for transportation, storm drains and sewer collection, water and sewer treatment could cost as much as $1.1 million.

The master plans are considered the blueprints for the city, with the goals set forth by the city’s 2010 General Plan.

The parks, storm drain and public safety master plans are nearly 90 percent complete, according to Andrews.

The water, sewer and wastewater treatment and transportation master plans are considered about 60 percent complete so far, he said.
