Fuel Our Future Podcasts

Podcasts are a great way for residents to be informed and learn about the comprehensive plan. As we progress through the planning process and request community feedback, a podcast is produced to take a deep dive into each element of the plan (housing, transportation, infrastructure, etc.). For example, in the transportation podcast, listeners will learn about how roadways are designed, what considerations are given when deciding where to build roads, and what types of transportation could we see in the future.

Why a podcast? Because they're practical. Listeners can tune into a podcast anytime, anywhere! Listen in the car, on daily walks, while fixing dinner or hanging out at home.
