Comprehensive Plan Update

The Town of Johnstown is updating its Comprehensive Plan! We want to capture and articulate the community’s emerging priorities, values, and desires to help guide decision-making and community resources over the next 20 years.

Listening to and responding to the community and your thoughts is key to enhancing this planning effort. If you’ve ever pondered Johnstown’s challenges and opportunities, we want to hear from you! We invite you to get involved and share your input. Your involvement means that the Town's policies and programs are shaped 'by you' and 'for you'.

Questionnaire #2: Opportunities. This second questionnaire is a way for the Town to report back on what was heard in Phase 1 and involve you in refining the community vision, guiding principles, and opportunities, that will shape the goals and objectives for the Comprehensive Plan. The time commitment to complete this questionnaire is about 10-15 minutes. Click here to participate and invite your family, friends, and colleagues to do the same. 

Quick Poll Series #2: Opportunities. Through July and August, expect to see social media posts inviting you to participate in quick polls (2-4 min time commitment) about our town's future, neighborhoods, parks and outdoor experiences, and the vision and principles.

Take the quick poll for: Town Parks and Outdoor Experiences | Community Vision and Guiding Principles | Future of Neighborhoods | Future of Johnstown

Opportunities Signs. Expect to see a few signs across town (in parks, at the new YMCA building, and some businesses) inviting you to get involved in the quick polls (above). You'll need your camera phone to scan a QR code and be directed to a poll. 

Opportunities Contest. Enter to win one of several gift cards to local businesses. Leave us your name and email after taking the questionnaire and quick polls (above), and we'll enter your name for each time you participate. 


Thank you to all of you who have participated so far. As you'll see in the Phase 1 Summary (here), we have captured over 300 opinions. Below is a word cloud illustrating what our community values about Johnstown.
