WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It's being touted as the "people's plan."

City of Watertown officials hosted an open house Tuesday to allow community members to see and give feedback on the city's first comprehensive plan.

It's been a year-long process to make the 20-year plan, which will help guide city decisions in the future.

Last winter, residents gave input at a series of open houses, which helped form the visions and recommendations in the plan.

There are neighborhood-specific and city-wide recommendations.

"Land use, transportation, economic development, all of those areas are areas where we want to see how we can do better in the future," city planner Geoff Urda said, "and this gives us the blueprint to guide future decisions so that pick a random year, in 2028, a decision needs to be made -- what does the comprehensive plan say?"

There will be another open house from 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Italian-American Civic Association.
