Citizen input needed for the next phase of community growth

The Community Development team wants to hear from you!  What types of housing would you like to see developed in the future? How would you prioritize spending for new government facilities? What are your ideas for future community parks and recreation projects? Now is the time to make your voice heard. At right are the dates and times for upcoming citizen engagement meetings. Please come and bring your family.

During these meetings planning team members will engage citizens using an online tool that helps guide discussions around budgetary considerations and lifestyle preferences. And for those who live too far to travel to these meetings, you will be able to provide your input online! Keep an eye on the Pokagon website’s Community Development page for more information.

Attendees will have the added opportunity to engage face to face with planning team members and fellow attendees.

You provided input via the 2018 Census, now help us take community planning to the next stage—deciding what we build and when. See you there!
