Rockland — Rockland’s Comprehensive Planning Commission is inviting all residents and others with an interest in the city's future to a community conversation to be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Flanagan Community Center.

This and other community conversations are part of the process for the city’s Comprehensive Plan update, now underway, the city commission stated in a news release.

A comprehensive plan, or comp plan, is a roadmap to help a community ensure its growth and development is consistent with a shared vision, the news release stated. It includes a future land use plan that provides a foundation for city zoning decisions.

At this meeting, the focus will be thinking about Rockland 20 years from now. How should neighborhoods look and function in the future? How and where should growth occur?

The Flanagan Community Center is located at 61 Limerock St. Parking is available on site. Additional community conversations will be scheduled in the coming months. Learn more about these at - plan/

What a great start for a community gathering spot on tilson avenue. But quite certain will never see it in my lifetime because we have no vision of what our future could be. I also noticed electric powered buses downtown and lots of outdoor cafes. Just imagine
