Flood control could play a big part in Utica’s future

Posted by wlpo on September 11, 2015

If you were to put together a wish list for the future of your town, what all would it include? A meeting last night in Utica started the process of a new comprehensive plan, or road map for the future.

According to the NewsTribune, the top themes brought up by village officials and those who call Utica home are flood control, restoration of the I&M Canal and more tourism and river access. Some other suggestions were trail improvements, a hardware store, more hotel rooms, and expanded parking, including designated parking for motorcycles on weekends.

The village is paying a consultant out of Plainfield to take all these suggestions and put together at least a draft of a new comprehensive plan by December.
