The city of Bowling Green presented an improvement plan to residents Wednesday night that's designed to develop and bring new attractions to the city.

City leaders hope the plans will make the city competitive in the future.

Roads, utilities, schools, parks and trails were just some of the goals highlighted to create a community that attracts and retains citizens.

"When people decide where they want to live, where they want to work, where they want to play," explained planning committee member Mark Remeis. "There has to be things the city offers that make people want to live and work in cities and Bowling Green feels it's very important that we have a well rounded community."

The plan is a 5-to-20 year projection of what Bowling Green could become.

The improvement plan will head to city council for review where hearings or public comment will be made on whether the city implements the plan.
