By focusing on each individual goal of the 2011 Comprehensive Plan Update, the Citizens' Implementation Committee (CIC) will examine every action step and, if necessary, amend the description to allow for quantifiable objectives in order to track progress and ultimately achieve the goals identified, while keeping in mind the original plan for the future development of the Town of Canandaigua.
Comprehensive Plan (This is currently undergoing a thorough update with expected completion in the spring of 2021)
Each year the Town Board approves priority goals for the CIC's coming year's projects. Below is the current and previous priority lists adopted via Town Board Resolution:
A Town of Canandaigua Comprehensive Plan update was written in 2011, but many aspects were never implemented until the creation of the CIC in 2014. The goal of the CIC is to discuss the update and take goals to the next level using expertise from each member and assigning individual project teams to work on the goals deemed to be the most important from the Comprehensive Plan. Below are the resulting project teams that are still progressing towards their goals and continuing to meet regularly; follow the links for more specific information about each team.
Tree Team (new in 2020)
Gateway Signage (new in 2020)
Affordable Housing (new in 2021)
Below are the examples of some of the projects that have been completed by the CIC. The recommendations were based on the work of each of the project teams that resulted in futher action by the town board in adoption of the policy or plans.
