Community Surveys

Survey One:

The first community survey for the 2020 Comprehensive Plan is now closed. As part of the survey, there were a series of questions aimed at collecting our priorities as a City over the next 20 years. Each question requires a little bit of reading and an open mind as to where the 2020 Comprehensive Plan should place its focus.
