Where Are We in the
Neighborhood Planning Process?
Working Group
Thank you for staying engaged with the River Road-Santa Clara neighborhood planning process! This email provides an update on what has happened since wrapping up the initial public outreach phase. The results of that work are all online .
What's Next?
The next step in this process is to create a community vision for the next 20+ years. This vision is being crafted from the values you expressed during the outreach phase last fall and from previous work done by members of the River Road and Santa Clara Community Organizations (SCRRIPT and SCRROL).

That input is being refined by your neighbors who are volunteering on the topic area working groups and the Community Advisory Committee (more information on these groups below). The purpose of creating this neighborhood vision before diving into developing a plan is to figure out how residents want the neighborhood to look and feel and what criteria we will use to evaluate goals and policies, and to prioritize actions, when we get to that stage of the planning process.

Thank you to the working group participants and Community Advisory Committee for sorting through the data and working on crafting the vision statements on behalf of your neighbors.

Check out the topic area pages on our website to see the results of the public outreach phase organized by topic area and the materials being used to draft the community vision.
Community Advisory Committee
We'd like to extend a warm welcome and thank you to the Community Advisory Committee (CAC)! The CAC will serve as an advisory body to the planning process and represent the varied voices of the River Road and Santa Clara communities. These volunteers were nominated by their neighborhood organizations from a pool of neighborhood applicants and they are doing an important service for the community.
Working Groups
Working Group1
If you are interested in diving into the detail in one of the five topic areas (Land Use, Parks and Natural Resources, Transportation, Economic Development, and Community), you are still welcome to join a working group! Working group members will represent their neighbors and work with the Technical Advisory Committee to create the community vision. Later they will help draft goals and policies, and develop the action plan. Send us an email to learn more!
