Bettendorf to host open house for comprehensive plan update

The City of Bettendorf is ready to show what its future will look like from a land planning perspective after months of gathering input from the community.

A public open house meeting is set for 6-8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20, to share updates on the Comprehensive Plan: Premiering Bettendorf. The meeting will be at the Quad Cities Waterfront Convention Center, 2021 State St.

“Back in May, we asked the community to get involved in this update by using our Community Interactive Map to tell planners where they would like to see new homes, commercial buildings, parks, trails, etc.,” said Mark Hunt, the city’s community development director. “Since then, there have been more than 1,600 total visits to the plan’s web page and we’ve received 284 comments.

“We are excited to show our citizens how that input is helping us plan the City’s future,” he added.

The public is invited to stop by the Community Open House at any time to view the Comprehensive Plan, ask questions and provide feedback before the plan is sent to the Bettendorf Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council for adoption in the first half of 2024.
