Neighborhood Nine Action Plan
What Does an Action Plan Mean for Neighborhood Nine?
It has been 12 years since the last neighborhood plan was done for Neighborhood Nine. A lot has changed since then! The Neighborhood Nine Action Plan is all about hearing from you - what you value most about your neighborhood and what ideas you have to make it better. Throughout 2023 there will be many opportunities to share your thoughts with City staff and your neighbors. Sign up for the Neighborhood Nine e-mail list below or keep an eye on this web page for more information on ways to be involved!
What Do You Think of the Draft Plan?
Throughout 2023 we worked with the community to craft a list of 27 actions that help improve day-to-day life in Neighborhood Nine. The actions in this draft final plan address community priorities such as parks and open space, mobility, and local businesses.
Please review the plan and let us know what you think is missing, or what parts you think are important.
