The City of Sulphur has begun the process of creating a "Master Plan" for the City to help guide the City's future.  To facilitate this process the City has hired professional urban planning consultants Tim Jackson and Steve Villavaso, who have more than 60 years combined experience planning for communities in Louisiana.

The consulting team will research and analyze data on the City, including U.S. Census and related demographic information, meet with citizens of the City of Sulphur in various forums, and will collate all of this information and public input into a "Master Plan" that establishes a vision for the future of Sulphur and will provide recommendations on how to implement that vision.

As part of the public input process, Mayor Chris Duncan has appointed a 15-member Citizens Advisory Committee to assist the consulting team. The committee is strictly advisory and has begun helping in the data gathering and public input phases of the planning process.  The Consultants will also work closely with the City of Sulphur Land Use Commission, the official City body authorized by State law to adopt the plan.

The planning process includes extensive public input and the consultants and the City encourage all citizens to attend the public meetings.  The first "Town Hall" meeting will be Thursday, January 13, 2011 at the Library located at 1160 Cypress St from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM.  The second "Town Hall" meeting will be Tuesday, March 1, 2011 from 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM at the Library located at 1160 Cypress St.  For more information, contact Arlene Blanchard, Council Clerk, at 337-527-4571.
Also, citizens are invited to send any comments or questions about the Master Plan and the planning process by clicking on the  Master Plan Comment Form.
