The city of Nixa is seeking feedback for a new 20-year comprehensive plan.
Called Nixa 2045, the initiative is designed to guide decision-making, development and infrastructure projects over the next two decades, according to a news release.
“To create a successful plan, listening to the community will be paramount," said Scott Godbey, director of planning and development for the city of Nixa, in the release. "Hearing the public’s voice on these development issues will help build consensus on what future growth should look like while preserving Nixa’s history, character, culture and heritage."
City officials say Nixa 2045 would focus on land use, transportation, education, parks and trails, development patterns, housing types, infrastructure and economic development. The goal is to finalize the comprehensive plan by late summer 2024.
Community feedback is slated to be gathered through an online survey, pop-up meetings, virtual public open houses and a multiday community engagement event, according to the release.
