Town of Galena’s Comprehensive Plan 2031

Galena’s Comprehensive Planning Process

Galena’s Comprehensive Planning Process Survey #3 (this is the last one, I promise).

The Planning & Zoning Members continue to have conversations about change, focusing on where we are now and where we want to go in the next 10 to 20 years. This plan will guide elected officials, staff, planning board members, and others when working with regulations, policies, and projects that impact development and the quality of life in Galena.

In Survey #1, we asked your thoughts on the challenges the Town and Community are having, in Survey #2 the focus was on the Quality of Life & Sustainability, Community Design, & Economic Development. In our last survey, we want to know your thoughts on Transportation, Infrastructure, Growth Areas, & Housing. Every Galena resident and business owner is a stakeholder in the home or business and everyone’s participation is needed in guiding the quality of life in Galena.

If you missed the 1st or 2nd surveys and would like to participate in sending us your feedback, please contact us at 410/648-5151 or email info@townofgalena.com and we would be happy to send you the survey form.
