Tiers of Engagement
Department of Planning and Community Development is leading this process and coordinating with all of the comprehensive plan stakeholders.
Ways to Engage
Share your current priorities and future goals in community listening sessions with the Department of Planning and Community Development. These sessions will provide an overview of the process and a platform for your voice.
Engage with the City and fellow citizens in working sessions where you will review work developed by planning consultants and participate in workshops to create a cohesive vision, and supporting recommendations, actions, and projects for the Comprehensive Plan.
Stay tuned as we update the Comprehensive Plan website with information on the plan making process, findings from engagements, and interim work products from consultants. From time to time you will also have the opportunity to interact with engagement tools that will be made available on the website.
The second Comprehensive Plan Public Workshop will be held on June 29, 2023.
To RSVP for upcoming Community Conversations or Public Workshops send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify what event you are attending and if you are bringing additional guests in your message. Thank you!
