How to Get Involved
Several input and engagement opportunities will be available to residents. Two public open houses, booths at community events, and survey’s via this website will also be used to collect input and feedback on plan recommendations. Results from these input sessions will serve as a continuing guide for City staff and the consultant team as they proceed with the development of the plan. Community surveys, information about future meetings, and project documents will continue to be added to this site as the process continues.
