View Executive Summary 

The City of Greeley’s Planning Division has recognized the need to develop catered strategies of communication and engagement with the Sunrise Neighborhood, one of the oldest and most diverse neighborhoods in the City. The City seeks to engage with the neighborhood in an inclusive and authentic way in order to address the prevalent zoning nonconformities in the neighborhood and establish long-lasting mechanisms of engagement. The Sunrise Neighborhood Land Use Initiative fulfills these goals through an engagement plan grounded in inclusivity, collaboration, and relationships. The author uses a phased approach to map out a flexible, yet detail-oriented engagement plan over a six-month period. The Plan utilizes strategies such as local youth canvassing teams, focus-groups, and creating citizen learning academies for a permanent resident taskforce to promote long-term engagement.
