City launches online tool to help citizens ‘speak up’

Posted

The Arvada City Council has launched an online engagement tool called Speak Up Arvada designed to allow citizens to offer feedback on a range of topics and projects, which will be delivered directly into city council’s strategic planning process.

Site visitors can write their vision of what they would like Arvada to be in 2028, pin a map identifying places they love in Arvada and take a number of short surveys. Current survey topics include affordable housing and public art in Arvada.

Following this visioning phase, Speak Up Arvada will evolve into a tool where residents can voice their opinions on topics ranging from public art to median landscaping to proposed developments. Data collected from the site will be analyzed and shared with the public.

During the initial visioning phase, eight Community Connectors — or Arvada residents — have been hired on a temporary basis to meet people where they live, work and play.

To offer feedback or learn more about Speak Up Arvada, visit www.speakupArvada.org.
