Portage Comprehensive plan ready for another rewrite


PORTAGE (WKZO) -- The City of Portage is once again working on their Comprehensive Plan which is part wish list and part guide book to future improvements in the community and everything is fair game.

Planning Specialist Brad Strader moderated a public forum Wednesday at City Hall to gather public input on how residents would like to see the city improved...from widening certain streets, to adding lighting to adding parks and trails and other big amenities.

He says eventually their suggestions could become part of the city’s Capital Improvement plan and the projects that make the cut will be funded.

They have been doing it for decades and most residents there like how their city is turning out, except maybe for congestion on Westnedge Avenue in December.
