Carlton Wortman principal John Enos talks about the work his team will do in putting together a comprehensive plan for the city of Chelsea, May 18.

The city hired Carlisle Wortman Associates to conduct a comprehensive study of all sectors of the community.

CWA won the city job for a price not to exceed $30,000 as the lowest bid. The city had received eight responses to its request for proposals and narrowed the search to two finalists.

CWA principal John Enos said his team will want to sit down and meet with the Planning Commission, City Council, the DDA and the public to gain a complete view of the community. The team will also look at the various plans and studies being conducted to help with the final report.

Enos’ team has an idea on how the process should unfold but needs input from the city first.

One way the public can get involved is through a mapping program where people can focus on a certain area of town and write in questions or concerns, Enos said. There will be opportunities for residents without internet access as well, he said.

The way the process works best is a total buy-in from the community, Enos said. He anticipates the process will take about a year to complete as his team will meet every other month to work on it.
