Community Outreach

Plan Engagement
Public involvement on the plan has been essential. There have been 3,805 total survey responses to the online survey, telephone survey and event questionnaires. The Park Master Plan project hosted two event booths to gain public input at the Plano Balloon Festival and International Fest. A week long visioning session sought input from City department heads, sports associations, and special interest groups. There have also been three public meetings to date with two additional ones planned in June.
