The success of the Comprehensive Plan is contingent upon the community engagement process in two key and related ways: the final adopted Plan must represent the needs and desires of the community and the process itself must build community trust and investment in the final product.
Goals for Public Participation
Achieve broad participation and input in the engagement process by using a wide variety of engagement methods and languages
Provide the information and resources to inform the public about comprehensive planning and its importance to the future of the city
Reduce barriers to community engagement
Ensure that the Plan reflects public input and the desires of the community
Reach a broader swath of the public by utilizing existing community assets and leadership
Throughout the project, there will be ongoing opportunities for you to weigh in!
The activities will focus on both breadth and depth, aiming to involve as many people as possible in the planning process and fostering discussions on specific topics.
