The City worked with Harris Park community members to produce a grass-roots, implementation-oriented plan that created a vision for the future of the neighborhood. The Plan will directly inform the ongoing major update to the city’s comprehensive land use plan and development code re-write, and will influence the design and implementation of future development projects and city-led improvements.
A great deal of community input was gathered to identify specific infrastructure and development needs. A focus group, consisting of local business and resident stakeholders, were tasked with helping to identify the community’s unique assets and challenges. The focus group ensured that the final product lays out a practical, neighborhood-supported approach that builds upon the vitality of the Harris Park Area community.
In addition to the three focus group sessions, three community workshops were held, allowing the greater Westminster community to provide input to the Plan. Community members also participated in an online survey that provided the project team with feedback on the draft plan document.
The Harris Park Community Vision Plan was formally received by City Council on October 25, 2021. You may view the final plan by clicking the link below:
