WithersRavenel worked with the Town of Benson to prepare the Comprehensive Plan, a document that serves as a blueprint for the community’s future. The principal design philosophy of this plan was that the document should fundamentally be shaped by those that live, work, and play within Benson.
Over the nine months developing the plan, WithersRavenel conducted iterative public outreach through workshops, interviews, and a project Stakeholder Group. Participants were encouraged to discuss values and goals associated with infrastructure, parks, mobility, land use, and many other elements of the plan.
The resulting document provides a detailed analysis of historical and recent demographic trends, previous planning efforts, plan vision/goals, and recommended actions. A future land use map was also developed as part of this plan, and includes community-driven, professionally vetted designs for the Town’s future growth.
