City of Champaign Welcomes Public Input on Council Goal Setting

The Champaign City Council will meet in October to discuss their goals for 2019-2021, and the public is encouraged to share its thoughts and ideas to help guide the discussion.  Every two years the City Council identifies a set of goals, which the City Manager and Executive Staff use to set priorities, direct work activities, and allocate staff and financial resources.  Public input is an important part of the Council goal setting process, and residents are encouraged to complete a short survey and share their thoughts on what the City should focus on during the next two years.

The survey asks two basic questions:

  • What do you value most about the City of Champaign?
  • What should be the City’s highest priority during the next two years?

The survey is available online at  Residents can also pick up a paper survey at the Champaign City Building (102 N Neil St., Champaign).  Completed surveys must be received by 5:00 p.m. on September 23, 2019.  All survey responses will be provided to the City Council in advance of their goal setting meetings in late September.

Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen asked for the public’s ideas for our community, stating, “The City Council works hard to represent the interests of the residents of our community.  In order to know residents’ concerns and ideas it is important for the public to engage with Council in the goal setting process so we can incorporate what we learn into the goals for the next two years.”

Residents with questions about the City Council Goal Setting process or survey should contact the City Manager’s Office at 217-403-8710.
