Name three community values that are important to maintaining a high quality of life for all in the Flagstaff Region. Why are they important? open space, resource sustainability (water), affordable housing
Things you Value natural beauty, authentic living
Community Assets access to nature/open space, compassionate community, commitment to equanimity and inclusion

What are 3 questions about the Flagstaff Region that the Regional Plan should answer to help our community face the challenges of our present and future? How will Flagstaff maintain open spaces and access to nature in the upcoming decades?, How will the regional plan support water sustainability and access in the upcoming decades?, How will Flagstaff maintain and create more affordable housing for lower income households?
Do you have any other thoughts you want to share with the Regional Plan Update Team? I remember an older version of Flagstaff's Vision from 2000. Sadly, Flagstaff did not maintain that vision (open space, affordable housing) and it slowly marketing families and lower income households out of the area. It has created significant SES disparities in the community. Moreover, there seems to be no sustainable plan for housing- it has run rampant and we do not have enough water for a continuously growing population...It is becoming a serious problem and if something is not done to curb the growth than this area is doomed.

The key to a sustainable and prosperous future in flagstaff is concentration growth in the core zone inside the urban growth boundaries with no additional forest or wild lands developed. Downtown should be high density European style high-rise condo and apartments with shops, yoga, restaurants on street level. Height limit should be increased to 10 stories to maximize units per acre in the high density core zone. Additional residential area expanded in the s 4th to jwp corridor and around university heights. No more growth out ft valley!
