Letter: Charrettes need your input

-A A +A

As per the “Notice of Charrette” in last week’s paper, no, the USS Charrett, a Navy destroyer launched in 1943, isn’t coming; and we are not getting a charrette in front of the horse as usual. Charrette, an American design supply retailer headquartered in the Boston area, is not locating next to Walmart. 
A charrette (often spelled charette and often called a design charrette) is an urban planning technique for consulting with all stakeholders (residents). So, the open house meetings scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  May 21 and 5 to  9 p.m. May 26 in council chambers at the Lancaster County Administration Building, are very important meetings for residents to attend.
The county planning department will be sharing information on the rezoning plan that will (or should) involve the U.S. 521 Corridor Study.
Your input is needed and our understanding of the consequence of this new zoning is very important to all residents of Lancaster County.
See you there!
