WHAT IS THE NEXT 10 

photo of a workshopThe Next 10 is a major effort to consider recent growth, current trends, and best practices, and to define updates to the city’s policies to guide the next 10 years. The process will lead to the creation of a 10-Year Evaluation and Appraisal Report that may recommend updates to the city’s Comprehensive Plan.

The city is committed to updating its policies to address the issues of today and prepare for those that may arise. The process is an opportunity to consider our city’s direction in light of current trends and community values and is an effort to proactively address topics that are important to you. 

The Next 10 process will last about 12-14 months and includes multiple opportunities for community input. The process will address topics important to you that will shape the community for years to come.


DATA GATHERING PHASE 

photo of a workshop participant Thank you to those who participated in the Stakeholder Interviews, Focus on the Future Workshops and Online Surveys that took place from July-October 2019. Below are the results of the feedback received from approximately 600 participants. 



WHO'S INVOLVED

Comprehensive Plan Evaluation Committee. The Comprehensive Plan Evaluation Committee is a diverse group of residents appointed to serve as community advocates for the evaluation, to provide guidance and direction regarding the process and substance, and to serve as stewards of the evaluation plan once completed.

Stakeholders. Various stakeholder groups were convened to provide insight into the city's Comprehensive Plan. These groups included business leaders, neighborhood associations, real estate professionals and developers, education professionals, local nonprofit and service organization, seniors, students, and young professionals, among others.

Public. Widespread community participation is vital to The Next 10’s success. Various in-person workshops and online tools will offer ways for the community to give input throughout the process. The first public events were held Sept. 23-25, 2019. A virtual Community Choice Workshop is available July 13 - August 3, 2020.

City Staff. City staff will support and help coordinate the work of all other groups and their local knowledge and expertise.

Elected officials. The mayor and council will monitor The Next 10 process and the resulting community vision, recognizing that success should be independent of the city’s elected leadership.

Consultants. Planning NEXT will facilitate the process and share their experience from working with other successful communities.
