The plan likely will be considered by Hamilton City Council at its Feb. 27 meeting.
Unlike many such plans, Plan Hamilton is written only online, which gives it several benefits, other than the lower printing costs (a small pamphlet was created to summarize it), Moeller and Hayden said.
For one thing, it will be easier to include progress reports and quick updates within the plan. Hayden said the city plans to provide at least annual progress reports to the commission and city council about the report.
Also, Plan Hamilton should be evaluated every five years, Hayden said.
“Implementation is something I take very seriously,” said Hayden, who noted city planners will take the lead in providing progress updates.
When there are proposed changes to the plan, minor ones should be approved by the planning commission, with major ones going before the council, Hayden said.
