A city is people. Not buildings, roads, or cars, but people define a city. Despite excellent design, beautiful color, and designer intent, buildings, roads, and cars are inanimate. Alone they provide no life for the city. When designers talk about “activating a street or space,” they are talking about adding people, who interact, socialize, recreate, and live in that space. The vibrancy of a city is measured by its people, not its things. The overarching goal of every General Plan is to create places where people want to be and can thrive—places that people will find vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive, connected by safe, comfortable streets for all users.
 
This General Plan aims to build places that are focused around people, creating a city and future that will meet the diverse needs and preferences of the community for all residents and visitors. Be a part of creating that future and share your comments on the draft General Plan Update
