Murfreesboro to Host Public Meeting Near Campus

The city of Murfreesboro will conduct a public meeting on Jan. 27 near MTSU’s campus to gather input from the community as part of the “Murfreesboro 2035” comprehensive plan.

Murfreesboro 2035 is a community-wide process to plan for the next 20 years of growth and development. The final results of the two-year planning process will become the city’s comprehensive plan, a guidebook that specifies policy, program, and project initiatives for the city, according to a city news release.

Consultants from Kendig Keast Collaborative will give a community presentation on “Chapter 2, Growth” at the meeting, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27, at Central Magnet School, 701 E. Main St.

At the meeting, the Murfreesboro community is invited to participate and attend workshops with consultants Kendig Keast Collaborative, Neel Schaffer Inc. and Smith Seckman Reid Inc., according to the city news release.

Residents, business owners and community leaders can provide input into the city’s quality of life, community character and growth capacity. The community workshop is part of the ongoing process of developing a comprehensive plan.

A 20-member task force formed to help promote community engagement and serve as a sounding board includes MTSU’s Dr. Gloria Bonner, Assistant to the President for the Office of Community Engagement and Support, and Kent Syler, an assistant professor of political science.
