To generate feedback on existing general plan goals and policies, the city and PlaceWorks hosted a half-day community open house—a “city hall at the park.” Over 500 residents attended and shared their thoughts using maps, stickers, markers, and tape and on “wishing walls.” PlaceWorks synthesized the community’s high level input into four primary issue areas: land use, open space, circulation, and infill opportunities. The findings were presented to the city council, who confirmed that the issues warranted further research and action by city staff.
