City Plan: A New Comprehensive Plan for Wheat Ridge

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Let’s Create a City Plan!

Wheat Ridge is working on a City Plan, and we want to hear from you. The City Plan, which is often called a comprehensive plan, articulates a community’s vision for the next 20 years, establishes shared values, and identifies priorities for the future. It also provides direction on issues such as what land uses should be where, how people get around, access to housing, and supporting the local economy. The City Plan will provide the framework for many decisions for years to come. Getting involved in this planning process and sharing your voice means shaping the future of Wheat Ridge.


How Can I Get Involved?

The best way to stay up to speed and share your voice is to subscribe for project updates under “Stay Informed” (on the right-hand side of your screen on desktop or middle of your screen on mobile). There will be four phases of engagement where community members will have the opportunity to provide input through a wide menu of options—from online surveys to in-person events with fun and thought-provoking activities. Subscribing for project updates means you’ll be the first to know when there are upcoming meetings, online activities, or other ways to share your voice.


Become a Neighborhood Champion

Already subscribed to project updates but want to do more? Consider becoming a Neighborhood Champion! This is a group of people who live, work, or have general interest in Wheat Ridge and who want to stay up to speed on the City Plan and (most importantly) help promote City Plan participation. Neighborhood Champions can share information with their networks and via City-provided yard signs and promotional items, and they provide relevant neighborhood feedback at various points throughout the process. Neighborhood Champions may devote however much time they desire and have available. This could include simply placing a sign in their yard, or it could involve actively promoting City Plan through their networks, participating in online engagement activities, and acting as the lead correspondent for their neighborhood.
