She said that the event has been cancelled indefinitely at this point, but added that the city is looking at ways to engage residents in those neighborhoods virtually. The city is currently working to launch an online engagement platform by the end of this week.
The idea behind the Engage Neighborhood Plan is to survey members of particular neighborhoods to see what can be done to better foster community development in those areas. That can include focusing on local historical assets or beautification projects as well as ideas of what residents would like to see added.
Each phase of the Engage Neighborhood Plan looks at a particular geographical area in the city. The first phase of the plan started last year and ended in March.
The second phase of the project is slated to start in the near future and is expected to continue into next year.
Meadows said the city wants to continue to engage residents and will take a more online approach. She said they also want to engage small groups of residents as well, but noted that work is dependent on coronavirus trends.
