City Staff attended the Mallard Creek Community Association meeting on Thursday evening, March 27 to discuss the draft Prosperity-Hucks Area Plan. Approximately 250 people attended the meeting, voicing considerable interest in further discussion and potential changes to the draft plan.
Highlights of questions and concerns at the meeting were:
- amount of apartments in the plan area
- traffic congestion
- need for schools and open space
- clarity of plan recommendations
Staff believes that more conversations need to take place prior to Public Comments or other consideration of the plan by City Council. We are formulating a schedule for additional input, and will share it on this website and by other means as soon as it is available.
The Draft Prosperity Hucks Area Plan is here. It reflects changes made as a result of comments at the meeting on August 8, 2013, as well as other comments received since that time. It includes information on market forces, crime, and traffic impacts.

Announcements of further activities will be noted here, and postcard notification will be mailed when City Council Public Comment is rescheduled.
An area plan is a policy document that provides the framework for future growth and development and serves as guidance for elected officials when making land use decisions. The Plan recommends changes in the future use of property within the area. See map above for the plan boundary.
