Tell us what you think!

The City of Suffolk needs your help. As we update our comprehensive plan, the 20-year plan for the City that guides land use, housing, transportation, parks and open space, public safety, schools, economic development and more, we request your participation as community members, as you know your City and community best. Your input is essential to our work and will help shape the plan. Since the last plan update seven years ago, the City has seen significant new development and change, making this an ideal moment to undertake this effort.

Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts below. More information about the planning process can be found below.
