Community Survey Now Available - City Seeks Public Input for Comprehensive Plan

The community survey - one part of the City of Wheeling’s comprehensive planning process - is now available for residents to share their thoughts on the City’s future. The survey can be found online at highlighted under the "Planning Updates" heading. Residents can also obtain a hard copy of the survey by visiting the Building & Planning Department on the third floor of the City-County Building, 1500 Chapline Street.

“The survey is one of the tools the City will use to understand what is most important and valuable to our community for this project. We welcome the community’s thoughtful responses where people can provide as much as detail as they would like,” said Building & Planning Director B.J. Delbert. 

The City’s Comprehensive Plan will focus on revitalization and reinvestment in public spaces, business districts and neighborhoods. A Comprehensive Plan describes a community vision and the steps to make it a reality. Comprehensive Plans make recommendations that can inform land use regulations and help guide growth and development for up to a 10-year period. This four-part planning process will be the community’s opportunity to shape city-wide priorities for the future. The plan will address the topics of youth and education; aging in place; housing; arts and culture; community development; labor and industry; land use; transportation; and resilience.

The City hosted the first of four public workshops on Feb. 12.
