Community Conversations

The City's Planning and Economic Development Department conducted an initial round of Community Conversations and Survey to gain ideas and input ahead of the General Plan Update project. The City extends its appreciation and thanks to everyone who attended any of the eight meetings from May 13, 2019 through June 13, 2019, and who completed the What Matters Most survey. The public input we received supports the need for a comprehensive update of the current 2035 General Plan.

The result of nearly 500 completed What Matters Most surveys is provided below. Respondents expressed their opinion regarding the city’s future by selecting three of eight topics listed in the survey they consider most significant.  While these results do not reflect the sentiment of the entire community, they do indicate issues that are foremost for Community Conversation participants.
