Thanks for participating!

Thank you to those who participated in the City’s Let’s Talk Resident Engagement Program engagement blitz for Anderson Park from October 2021 to March 2022. We've enjoyed talking to you and your neighbors and appreciate the time and energy you gave to provide feedback on neighborhood opportunities and challenges.

The Anderson Park blitz consisted of two rounds of engagement that included two surveys, two virtual meetings, two virtual office hours, and an in-person open house. More than 130 Anderson Park residents participated over the course of five months. To learn more about the blitz and what your neighbors had to say, explore the Anderson Park Blitz Report here.


What is Let's Talk Anderson Park and Where Does Your Input Go?

This page is part of the City’s Let’s Talk Resident Engagement Program. The program breaks the city down into 10 neighborhoods. We're focusing on Anderson Park from October 2021 to March 2022 for an engagement blitz.

The first step is a survey to understand what's important to you and what you'd like to talk about in upcoming conversations with the City. After that, we'll follow up with a range of in-person and/or virtual events and online activities to home in on what's important to residents in your unique neighborhood.

Resident feedback shapes a program work plan that may include future City budget requests and decisions on what projects to work on in the near and long term. The Let's Talk Program Work Plan is updated continuously and after each engagement blitz and is evaluated by City Council. You can find the Work Plan on the main program page at: https://whatsupwheatridge.com/lets-talk.

Why are we doing this?

In 2018, City officials heard loud and clear that residents want more and better opportunities to weigh in on issues that impact their neighborhoods. This resulted in the 2019 adoption of an updated Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy (NRS) by City Council. The update was led by a 26-member Wheat Ridge resident committee.

The NRS is a citywide policy document that reflects a year of robust community input. The primary recommendation is for the City to conduct focused engagement of residents at the neighborhood level.


What does the engagement blitz look like in Anderson Park?

Over the course of October 2021 to March 2022, the City will be reaching out to Anderson Park residents in several ways and in multiple stages:

  1. Round 1 of engagement where residents tell us what’s most important to them in their neighborhood. This round includes:
    • The Prime the Pump Survey (October - December 2021)
    • In-person and/or virtual events (December 2021)
  2. Round 2 of engagement you prioritize what actions the City might take to address your feedback. This round includes:
    • The Action Survey (January - March 2022)
    • Let's Talk Open House (February 2022)
    • Virtual Office Hours (February 2022)
  3. An action plan stage where we recommend City actions based on your input throughout the blitz (March 2021)
