What's Your Vision for Holland's Future? Take a Survey

Northampton Township wants residents and business owners to take a survey about the Village of Holland.

The survey, which can be found by clicking here, should be printed out and dropped off or mailed to the township administration building to the attention of Michael Solomon.

The survey will be used to help the township and county's Planning Commissions to develop a Master Plan for the Village of Holland. At a meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 4, a town hall meeting was help, where traffic issues throughout the community were discussed.

One question on the survey asks residents to choose their vision Holland's future. Should it have "small town character" with limited retail uses? Perhaps it should be a "mixed-use walkable community" that promotes a mix of residential and retail uses within walking distance. Three other options including a "retail destination," "play and shop destination" or "status quo" are available choices as well.

Residents can also rank the five most needed businesses in Holland. There are eight options such as entertainment and cultural attractions, fast food and take out restaurants, convenient stores, gas stations and more—but only five should be picked.

At the town hall meeting it was announced that future meetings to develop a plan for the village will be advertised and open to the public. Patch will update with details when another meeting is scheduled.
