To further encourage public input in the creation of the City’s new Comprehensive Plan, the Department of Development has launched an interactive, online forum website www.EnvisioNR.com.
The EnvisioNR site features discussion forums to submit ideas, opinions and suggestions on specific questions as they relate to the comprehensive plan’s six focus areas. The initial set of topics on the EnvisioNR forum focuses on Neighborhoods + Housing. Additional topics on other focus areas will be posted in the weeks and months ahead, allowing participants to revisit the site and give new feedback. All responses will be collected by the EnvisioNR team and reviewed for the next step in the planning process- the creation of recommendations for the city’s future.
To get started, visit www.EnvisioNR.com and sign up by clicking the purple “Sign Up Here!” box. Signing up is necessary to participate. By clicking on any of the listed questions, participants will be able to submit their own answers, support other participants’ answers, and vote on the best ideas.
“This new site is an innovative way to engage New Rochelle residents, institutional stakeholders and the public during the EnvisioNR Comprehensive Plan process,” noted Eleanor Sharpe, Planning Director. “Active public participation is key to a successful comprehensive plan, and the website makes it easy and convenient. We encourage everyone to visit the site and become part of the dialogue.”
