Community Engagement Framework

We face new challenges and changing circumstances. Being part of the solution is critical if we’re to say we’re creating the neighborhoods and city of our dreams. Check out what we’ve come up with below. We’ve been advocating for city staff to adopt these engagement frames.

Maybe if we had these in place we wouldn’t be getting warehouses 50 feet from our back yards or toxic superfund sites like the Ag Park.
