Project and Planning Meetings
The City regularly hosts dedicated meetings to discuss large projects or ongoing planning efforts. We are specifically looking for feedback at these meetings so they are a great way to get involved and speak directly to the members of our team who are working on these projects. We take public comments and ideas very seriously and appreciate the opportunity to design projects with these feedback in mind.
You can find these engagement meetings in the event calendar- just filter by the category "Get Involved." You can also view upcoming meetings here in a listing.
Surveys and Polls
Our team also uses online or mailed surveys to get feedback for specific projects. These may include an opportunity for open-ended feedback, but sometimes we are looking to draw comparisons or prioritize and use standardized questions and responses. You're always welcome to reach out and share additional feedback if you like. These types of opportunities can be found at www.imaginekalamazoo.com.
