IK at Work

Over 16 months of over 4,000 diverse community voices  joined together exploring opportunities, breaking down barriers, and charting new directions for the City. At open houses, community picnics, art hop, and online surveys, people from every neighborhood contributed ideas about places, programs, policies, investments, and communal goals that were most important to them.  The visions, plans, and goals to guide the City are available to help everyone reach the desired outcomes of the work that will now go forward. The PROJECTS page is a place to track and see progress on goals outlined in the PLANS.
