The City of Livingston began a process to update to the 2017 Growth Policy in October 2019. The City sought to update the Growth Policy to reflect the needs and desires of the community and to provide meaningful guidance for the City for future land use decisions. 

On October 1, 2019, the City Commission passed a resolution to hire Burton Planning Services (the consultant) to perform the update. Major steps included collecting and analyzing information, determining community concerns, and making recommendations pertinent to all facets of the Growth Policy such as economy, housing, land use, local services, population, public facilities, natural resources, transportation, intergovernmental coordination, policies and regulations, and more.

The process will continue through January 2020 when adoption is anticipated. In the meantime, opportunities will be available to provide input on goals and components of the Growth Policy.
