The meeting is designed as an open house with a come and go, or come and stay format. Residents, business owners, and anyone interested in the future of Lufkin is invited to stop by to see maps and images depicting options for the future of the community. Planners and designers from Burditt Consultants will be on hand to answer questions and collect feedback and childcare will be provided.

The City of Lufkin began the development of a new Comprehensive Plan in late October 2016, and the new plan will be centered on a Future Development Map providing a guide for decision-making by City Council, the Planning and Zoning Commission, City staff, developers, residents, and anyone with a stake in the future of our community. Planning for future infrastructure, roads, and neighborhoods along with quality of life resources such as economic development, parks and recreation, and community identity will be included in the Comprehensive Plan. The City invites and encourages all citizens to get involved with the planning process.
