The Neighborhood Engagement Team met in 2020 and 2021 to work towards the creation of a neighborhood engagement plan. The team includes representatives from Community Resilience, Parks, Special Events, Traffic, Police, Code Enforcement, Planning, Communications, AEDA, and Housing.
The team inventoried neighborhood touchpoints and current programs across work systems, identified gaps and opportunities to improve services, brainstormed tools and resources to close those gaps, and worked through action items to achieve a vision for successful neighborhood engagement in 5 years.
A draft copy of the plan has been completed. The Neighborhood Engagement Program has been transferred from the Vibrant Community and Neighborhoods work system to the Organizational and Service Effectiveness work system. In 2022, work will include amending and finalizing the neighborhood engagement plan.
