April 27 Partner Presentation at Port to Feature Community Development Director

Port of Ridgefield

How is the City of Ridgefield preparing for its rapidly-growing population?

As subdivisions spring up, every new home means more citizens in town. Learn how the city is planning and managing for this continued growth cycle at the Port of Ridgefield’s April 27 regularly scheduled commission meeting. Jeff Niten, community development director for the City of Ridgefield, will make a Partner Presentation to the commission and guests during the Innovation Report segment of the meeting. Niten will provide a look at the city’s updated Comprehensive Plan that serves as a shared blueprint for Ridgefield over the next 20 years.

“The process was extensive” Niten said. “It involved many members of the public. We solicited input from our partners and community groups in order to better prepare for the new and future members of our community.”

In February of this year the Ridgefield City Council adopted the update for the Comprehensive Growth Management Plan, Niten said. His presentation will cover several upcoming projects designed to create “the Ridgefield our citizens told us they wanted to see.”

The April 27 port commission meeting begins at 3 p.m., and will be held at the port offices at 111 W. Division St. in Ridgefield.
