Did you miss our October webinar, How to Improve Community Engagement with Innovative Planning Tools? We recorded it, and it is available to view today here! Teva Dawson with The Des Moines Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) led us through the innovative techniques for outreach and community engagement that they used for their recently completed 18-month planning effort to protect 150 miles of urban streams.
Participants will learn:
- A variety of community engagement methods including real-time polling via text messaging, focus groups, surveys, paddle outings, river history lectures, and hands-on map drawing workshops
- At what point during the planning process to use these methods
- How to engage the media in planning efforts
