Civic Engagement Initiatives
What do we mean when we say civic engagement or public engagement? These terms mean city officials want to encourage public participation and an understanding of government through outreach and inclusiveness initiatives that inspire trust and confidence in local government.
There are everyday municipal governmental topics or projects that may benefit from early or expanded civic engagement—Including major policy decisions, city planning initiatives, transportation initiatives, the budget process, topics of significant public interest, topics with citywide impact, topics involving “not in my neighborhood attitudes” or simply new city services or programs.
