EDMONDS — City leaders are canvassing residents and businesses to gather feedback for a strategic plan and vision they hope to craft next year.
Surveys geared at adults and high school and college students are available at www.edmondswa.gov.
Mail-back surveys also are being distributed in December with license renewal notices to business owners; that survey also is available at stores across the city. In addition, surveys of employees of Edmonds-based businesses are being distributed during business license renewals.
City Council will put the survey results to work during public workshops in 2012. The public will then preview the results of those workshops during open houses slated for early next year.
The ultimate goal is to produce a strategic plan and vision for the next decade. The adopted plan will be used to help focus city finances and set priorities.
