Community Engagement Plan
A community engagement plan is currently being developed. The goal is to deliver a meaningful and innovative community engagement process that 1) informs people about the K2044 plan; and 2) embodies the Council Goal for an “Inclusive and Equitable Community” by ensuring that all voices belong in this community conversation and will be heard.
The engagement plan will incorporate recommendations from the draft Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging 5 Year Roadmap. The plan will engage community members underrepresented in civic life, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), youth, LGBTQIA , seniors, low income households, people experiencing homelessness, and immigrant communities including people facing language barriers.
Options for engagement will include in- person or virtual workshops, open houses, town halls, focus group stakeholder meetings, surveys, project webpage, interactive portal for comments, community events, and a virtual City Hall lobby.
