What opportunities will I have to shape PK4Keeps?

PK4Keeps will gather vital information from the public in a number of ways during the project. It will do so in a manner that goes beyond the creation of community “wish lists” by sharing data, presenting trade-offs, and getting to the root of what the community values and what it is willing to do to achieve its goals. 

Engagement opportunities and tools will include:

Online Surveys

Accessible online surveys to gather broad public feedback


>> Read the summary of the July online survey #1

>> Read the summary of the November online survey #2

Open Houses

Public open house meetings hosted by PK4Keeps’ Steering Committee members and consultants to present findings and engage participants in trade-offs and decision-making


>> View the March 2022 Open House Results

>> View the December 2021 Open House Results

>> View the August 2021 Open House Feedback Summary here

Kitchen Table Conversations

Small group conversations arranged by Steering Committee members at points throughout the project to pose questions and test ideas with friends, colleagues, and neighbors


>> Kitchen Table Conversation #1 Instructions

>> Kitchen Table Conversation #2 Instructions

>> Kitchen Table Conversation #3 Instructions

Stay tuned for opportunities to share your feedback!

Information on upcoming opportunities to participate in PK4Keeps will be added to this page when it becomes available and will be distributed throughout the community by project stakeholders.

The results of project surveys and other engagement tools will be compiled in the PK4Keeps Library.
