STEP 1: INITIATE Project Kick-Off – April to May 2018
With the Crutchfield selected for a Small Area Plan Update, staff executed the INITIATE step, to finalize the boundary via a City Council and Board of County Commissioners resolution. All property owners within the boundary were notified that the planning process would begin. Staff contacted key stakeholders to serve on the Citizen Advisory Team, and staff began to gather data required for the plan.

STEP 2: ENGAGE Community Engagement – May 2018
This step began the process of community engagement. The initial meeting of the Citizen Advisory Team (CAT) included orientation to the planning process, basic rules of engagement and preliminary discussions about schedule commitments. The CAT was formed as a first line to communicate with community residents and stakeholders. The CAT helps to ensure that the Small Area Plan is aligned with the needs, aspirations, and concerns of the Crutchfield community. 

The Small Area Plan Update Kick-Off event included an introduction to City staff and the staff from the consulting firms, a description of the Plan Update process, presentation of existing conditions and information from the previous Small Area Plan and the Sector Plan, and a mapping activity.
