The city is asking residents to weigh in with answers to “ideas for the future” questions focused on its greatest strengths and opportunities in the city in an online survey as part of the process in updating the comprehensive plan. 

The survey also asks residents to complete a brief interactive mapping activity about recent change and their hopes for future development. 

The process to update the city’s comprehensive plan will take more than a year, and was last updated seven years ago.
