City planning -- Oregon -- Monroe, Land use -- Management
In 2017, the City of Monroe Planning Commission decided to update its Comprehensive Plan, last amended in 1986 and sought technical support. In addition to developing a Buildable Lands Inventory, Housing Needs Analysis, and Economic Assessment to support the comprehensive plan update process, Constellation Planning created a Field Guide as an interactive resource to be used for long range planning processes in Monroe, recognizing an opportunity to increase planning capacity.
The Field Guide includes educational appendices and usable worksheets that are intended for a diverse audience, including community members, commissioners, elected officials, city staff, planning partners, and consultants. Using a learning-by-doing approach, the Field Guide was crafted through a robust engagement strategy that sought to utilize best practices for equitable engagement geared towards incorporating previously uncaptured voices and perspectives.
The Buildable Lands Inventory is included below as a supplemental file.
