The Hagerstown City Council's lengthy wish list includes updating a comprehensive plan, preparing a new subdivision ordinance and examining employee compensation.
There's no deadline to the 80-plus ideas on the list - which the City Council discussed Tuesday during a meeting devoted to setting goals - but many projects are under way or expected to be soon.
City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman told the council it was "developing what you'd like to see as your legacy for Hagerstown."
Offering affordable housing is listed under "Community Revitalization."
Designing a utility upgrade and streetscape project on Jonathan Street is in the "City Buildings, Facilities and Infrastructure" category.
Under "Downtown and Economic Development," one item is helping Washington County Free Library expand and upgrade its downtown branch.
Kathleen Maher, the city's planning director, told the council the city needs to keep up with local growth.
"By not annexing [from 1950 to 2000], Hagerstown did not capture new population, new property tax revenue, or new income tax revenue," a written summary Maher gave the City Council says.
