The City sponsored a public educational workshop titled "We have a plan, now what?"on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the Wood County Public Library. Kirby Date, a community planner, reviewed best land use practices and potential ordinance revisions that will facilitate implementation of the Future Land Use Plan.
