What Is the Process?
The District 4 Master Plan process is comprised of five tasks. The
Plan is a community-driven project that must reflect the interests
and desires of the community. Because the Plan ultimately
belongs to the District 4 community, broad participation is
necessary so that it is shaped by local input. There will be several
opportunities for the community to guide the future of District 4.

opportunities, and what community assets should be
preserved and enhanced into the future.
