Past Public Engagement Forums
Public Investment Action Plan
Through the City's Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP), the Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO) received fifty concept proposals during a two-month Request for Concepts period for infrastructure improvements on the waterfront.
The City Council voted in January to put the final projects on the March ballot for a public vote.
North Avenue Corridor Study
The North Avenue Corridor Study is evaluating the existing corridor and developing recommendations that will remake the corridor as a more walkable, bikeable, and safe corridor for all users. This forum ended on June 30, 2014.
Redistricting is the process of adjusting electoral district boundaries to meet U.S. Constitutional requirements of equal representation. To ensure equal representation, the city has a responsibility to redraw ward boundaries and get voter and legislative approval for a charter change as soon as possible. The courts have determined that except in extraordinary circumstances, the difference between the highest and lowest number of people a city councilor represents should be less than 10%. The results of the 2010 US Census show that Ward 1 voters are under-represented, and Ward 4 and 7 voters are over-represented by the current system.
PlanBTV Downtown & Waterfront Plan
This web tool was developed after receiving countless public comments during the planBTV public outreach and engagement process. In order to keep the planning process open and transparent, we wanted to allow everyone to see the comments and ideas we have heard at meetings, during the charrette or through email.
