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'.

Please take 10 minutes to complete this questionnaire (here) and share, among other things, your values and vision for the Town as well as challenges and opportunities. Get involved in shaping the Town's future and encourage your family, friends, and colleagues to do the same.
