NOLANVILLE — The City Council is planning a community workshop to lay out the city’s goals, plans and objectives for 2013, said City Manager Stephen Pearl.

Among the items up for discussion are a strategic plan, an update of the city comprehensive plan, increasing code enforcement efforts and beautification, and a street maintenance plan.

Mayor Christina Rosenthal said the workshop will allow residents to be part of the process to enhance the city.

“The citizens can come to the workshop and put their word in on what they want to see in their area, whether it’s sidewalks or a grocery store,” she said.

Some residents said a street maintenance plan for improving roadways and highways is long overdue. The council anticipates the plan will resolve any problematic areas, but Rosenthal said motorists should remain cautious at all times, regardless of the existence of a street maintenance plan.

“Especially around schools, because in a small community like this we have children everywhere, (and) we don’t have red lights at every corner,” she said. “If people are courteous the way they want to be treated on the road then it will be a better place.”

The community workshop has not yet been scheduled, Pearl said.
