Community Engagement

The way in which we accomplish the work set out in the Strategic Plan is as important as the outcomes. As one of the six commitments in the Strategic Plan, Community Engagement plays a vital role in how we will work with the whole community to, " Listen, share, and engage with our community to drive action and build trust in City government."

The information below includes links to current and recent Community Engagement programs. Each link will take you to more information and resources related to each of the Community Engagement programs.

For questions, please reach out to the Communications & Creative Resources office, or 785-832-3411.
