Work continues on the city of Rollingwood’s first comprehensive plan—a road map for future development, goals and policies.

In an effort to collect community input, Rollingwood launched a survey focused on the needs and priorities within the community, according to an April 8 news release from the city.

The survey was created by the comprehensive plan strike force, a 13-member citizen advisory group that was established by Rollingwood City Council in October. The stakeholder group, led by former Mayor Thom Farrell, serves as consultants within the comprehensive plan process, which began in spring 2020.

“Our committee has been working diligently over the past six months to support the comprehensive planning process and ensure that a range of perspectives reflecting the values of the community are included,” Farrell said in the release.

Once developed, the plan will feature citywide goals for future land use, transportation, parks, trails, the city’s fiscal health and other components.



The online survey is open to every Rollingwood resident at least 18 years old and is limited to one response per person. The strike force will collect responses through April 26, according to the release.
