September 2013 – October 2014.
PDC worked with Perkins + Will, an internationally renowned urban design firm, to help design and facilitate public engagement and outreach for the Civic Center Master Plan. Through this three phase, year long process, stakeholder groups and members of the Cupertino community provided ideas and feedback on concept design options that ultimately helped shape the preferred option that was developed and submitted for approval by the City Council. Engagement activities included community interviews, stakeholder meetings, community workshops, and online engagement.
March 24th – April 4th, 2014
PDC developed and delivered a customized training package to help prepare the City of Thousand Oaks staff and City Council members to lead community engagement efforts throughout a six month Visioning Program. The training involved a facilitation workshop for City staff and select community leaders, as well as a series of meetings with City Council members and staff to prepare for facilitating community engagement committees. The City of Thousand Oaks is engaging the community in a 2064 Visioning Program through October 2014.
