•Plan and conduct an innovative and extensive public participation charrette process, developing a high level of communication between professional staff and the citizens of the community that will result in a sustainable plan;
•Develop and articulate a community vision and concrete goals for the City to work toward over the next 20 years; and
•Provide continuous feedback throughout the public participation process.
