Participant input will help inform the creation of a community vision for 2045 that will guide the city’s next comprehensive plan
VANCOUVER – On Monday (Sept. 26), the Vancouver City Council will host its regular meeting and community communication forum at Educational Service District 112 (2500 NE 65th Avenue). During the communication forum, participants will listen, learn and talk together about the type of community they’d like Vancouver to be in the future.
“From transportation and water use, to housing and climate action, Vancouver is developing a wide range of plans that will guide the city’s future,” said Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle. “As we prepare to update Vancouver’s comprehensive plan in 2023, we want to hear your ideas for how to improve our community.”
Through small-group discussions, community members will be able to share their ideas, hear from other community members and directly engage council members in conversation. Participant input will help inform the creation of a community vision for 2045 that will guide the city’s next comprehensive plan.
