Community Involvement Strategy


The City of Santa Rosa is committed to providing a transparent, inclusive, engaging, and far-reaching community outreach and engagement process during the General Plan Update project. In order to achieve this, the Project Team prepared a Community Involvement Strategy (CIS) that identifies numerous opportunities for the public, key civic and business leaders, as well as City staff and elected officials to be involved in the General Plan Update process. The document highlights ways that specific outreach activities will seek out and consider the viewpoints of a wide cross-section of Santa Rosa communities, with a targeted focus on reaching populations that are traditionally under-represented in planning processes (e.g., communities of color, low-income communities, immigrants, youth and seniors). The CIS was reviewed and accepted by the Santa Rosa City Council on August 25, 2020.
