The active engagement of the public, leaders in local communities, and other regional stakeholders is a key ingredient of the Going Places planning process. To this end, extensive stakeholder outreach efforts were made from the very beginning, and have continued throughout the process to promote the initiative, provide status updates, and encourage active participation.
Throughout the project, MVRPC has held open houses (see Phase I, Phase II, first half of Phase III), workshops (see Phase II), and public presentations across the Region.
In Phase II, a more elaborate outreach campaign was launched to publicize community workshops across the Region.
Outreach continued in Phase III, in an effort to solicit as much input as possible during the selection process. A phone survey was also conducted to identify the values of the Region's residents related to the future of land development.
