How will community input be solicited?
As part of the master planning process, the City requested that the Encanto Planning Group convene the meetings and workshops on behalf of the community in order to bring together the neighborhoods that are affected by the master planning process. The purpose of the Encanto Working Group is to provide the City with feedback that is representative of the diverse interests of the community at large. Further, the Working Group will provide a public forum for the community to be able to provide input as part of the master planning process.
Who can be on the Working Group?
The City is in the process of forming a Working Group, consisting of up to 25 community members representing a balanced coalition of residents, community groups, businesses, and non-profit organizations.
The Encanto Planning Group will provide up to 5 Planning group members to serve on the Working Group. The remaining seats (up to 20 seats) shall be divided as follows:

How will the community find out about the master planning process?
In order to notify surrounding residents, business and property owners and institutional uses of the meetings and planning work being prepared, the City will handle the noticing by creating a website and email distribution list. The City will also mail agendas and meeting summaries as well as all work produced to the EMVMP Working Group members. All information will be posted to this website and will be made available at the library in advance of the meetings.
To be added to the EMVMP email distribution list, please send an email to [email protected] requesting to be added to the list.
