Ballston Spa Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee Explores Social Considerations
July 7, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Village of Ballston Spa’s Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee will meet twice during the month of July to explore the social makeup of the village and how it will inform decisions and actions for the village’s future. The meetings will be held on the first and third Thursdays of the month, July 7 and July 21, at 7 pm at the Saratoga County Office Building at 50 West High Street in Ballston Spa.
The committee will review the diversity of household composition, income, education, ethnicity and lifestyle, as well as examine the role of social organizations in and about the village. The committee looks to study potential changes in demographics and their future effects. Ultimately the goal is to consolidate the most essential recommendations into the village’s comprehensive plan.
The committee will not hold meetings during the month of August but will be creating and distributing a survey to help better understand the dynamics of not only those who live in the village but also those who come to the village for various reasons. Working with Behan Associates, the brief survey will have the capacity to be accessed via a QR code so that people can complete it on their mobile phones, as well as a print hard copy option. Responses will be anonymous. The results will be tabulated, and the committee will then hold a public workshop on September 1 to discuss and develop a vision for the village’s future.
The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee has been formed to work in conjunction with Behan Associates to identify and study several topics over the course of the next year in order to create a final plan for approval by the Village board of trustees. All meetings are open to the public, who are encouraged to attend and provide input, either in-person attendance or via Zoom. Zoom link will be available prior to each meeting at https://www.villageofballstonspa.org/comprehensive-plan-steering-committee.
