Public invited to provide feedback, ideas at three-day workshop

Comp Plan Flyer 13-15 Dec

Killeen’s Comprehensive Plan takes next step forward

KILLEEN, Texas (Dec. 7, 2021) – The City of Killeen is inviting citizens to join us in our next steps in shaping the future of our city, through a series of interactive workshops from Monday, Dec. 13 – Wednesday, Dec. 15.

This is all a part of the city’s Comprehensive Plan to outline a vision for the city, which kicked off in March 2021 with a collection of surveys, interactive maps, “walkshops,” and public forums that have engaged the public throughout this year.

The latest workshops will be held at the Killeen Utility Collection Conference Room (210 W. Avenue C). The community is asked to come see the results of the surveys and focus groups from this year regarding building healthy and equitable neighborhoods, creating a more vibrant and resilient economy, identifying areas where reinvestment or new development is needed and determining what growth can be supported and afforded.

Community engagement is needed at every stage of the planning process and from every resident and stakeholder. We ask citizens to please join us and tell us what they want our city to look like and be, as the community’s ideas are what will shape our city’s future.

Many citizens provided feedback on street repairs/infrastructure, downtown plans, neighborhood redevelopment and small business investments and the city’s consultants, Verdunity will be on hand from Dec. 13- 15 to discuss results of the feedback and a way ahead.

Previous workshops and discussions can be found on our City of Killeen website at KilleenTexas.gov/OurKilleen.

*The following are the dates and times that are open to the public to discuss establishing community-wide values and priorities, as well as a framework to align future decisions for land use, transportation networks, public facilities and other projects.

  • Monday, Dec. 13: 4 - 6p.m.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 14: 7a.m. - 7p.m.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 15: 7a.m. - 1p.m.
