The Champaign City Council has begun the process of establishing their goals for the next two years and they encourage the public to share their thoughts and ideas to help guide the future of our community. The City Council sets the vision for the City and adopts goals every two years to provide direction on City services and priorities. Public input in the process is an important part of the process and the City encourages its residents to respond to a new City survey regarding the goals for 2015-2017.
The survey asks two basic questions:
- What is the most important issue facing our community?
- What should be the Council’s highest priority over the next two years?
The online survey is available at ci.champaign.il.us/CouncilGoals. Residents can also pick up the survey in the City Manager’s Office (102 N Neil Street, Champaign). The City invites the community to promote the survey on other web or blog sites in order to maximize community input. All surveys and comments must be received by October 9, 2015.
Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen called for the public’s assistance, stating, “The City Council was elected to represent our constituents and to work towards building the type of community we all want to live in. In order to do that, we need to hear from the public as to what they think the City should focus on during the next two years.”
Special Study Session meetings for Council goal setting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on both October 27 and 28 at the Illinois Terminal (45 E University Avenue, Champaign). Both meetings will be open to the public.
Residents with questions about the City Council Goal Setting process are encouraged to contact the City Manager’s Office at 217-403-8710.
