Have you made your voice heard on Fayette County's comprehensive plan update?

Have you used Map.Social to map how you see the future of Fayette County?

The coming few days offer your last chance to participate before the plan update process begins. Input is being sought through Nov. 30.

Community members can get involved immediately in three ways:

• By completing the community survey online at https://hla.fyi/FayetteCountySurvey

• By mapping ideas on community assets, places for improvement, and sites for growth and preservation at https://hla.fyi/FayetteCountyMapSocial

• By monitoring the project website at https://hla.fyi/FayetteCounty. Updates, announcements, opportunities for involvement and draft plan content will be posted for public review throughout the process.

Members of the public are asked to visit the links and share this announcement with contacts they think may be interested in participating in the Fayette County Comprehensive Plan.

Officials remind community members the comprehensive plan process is their opportunity to help shape the county's future.

The Fayette County Chamber of Commerce is working with the Comprehensive Plan Local Outreach Team to empower everyone to get the word out about the plan process.

Local businesses that have yet to participate are asked to print out the handout and pass them out at their office, send a company email to staff or make a social media post about the plan.

Every 10 years, the county goes through a process to devise a plan that expresses the community-wide vision for which Fayette County should strive. The plan guides elected and appointed officials in making decisions about growth and development, infrastructure, transportation, public services, recreation and natural resources.

The outreach team is still seeking feedback from Fayette County residents. Individuals are urged to go online at https://hla.fyi/FayetteCountySurvey and answer the short survey.

Feedback will be accepted through Nov. 30.

Businesses or organizations that are able to collect completed surveys can drop them off at the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce office on Oyler Avenue in Oak Hill. If it's easier to scan them and email or mail them to the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority, that is also an option. The contact person there is Jenna Grayson (jgrayson@nrgrda.org or NRGRDA, Attn: Jenna Grayson, 116 N Heber St # B, Beckley, WV 25801).

If you need someone to come pick them up, call the chamber office at 304-465-5617.

The county resource coordinator's office has also placed drop boxes throughout the county.
