West End

Energize Our Neighborhoods has selected the West End for its upcoming projects.

Visioning Events

A visioning event brings neighborhood residents together to develop a shared vision for where they live, work and play. No idea is too big or small; the goal is to think creatively and passionately about future investments that support the group's shared vision.

Throughout 2018, stakeholders had multiple opportunities to provide their feedback.  Using an online survey and in-person events, a total of 10 visioning events were held, with 189 total participants providing their feedback about neighborhood projects.

In 2019, stakeholders were invited to an open house event and provided a mail-in voting option to prioritize neighborhood projects and will begin collaborating to implement those projects.

Projects

Thank you to everyone who attended the Open House or mailed in your postcard. A total of 106 votes were received, and Energize will begin moving forward on the two projects that received the most votes:

If you are interested in being involved in either of these projects, please fill out the form below.
