Public Engagement Roadmap

Let's Map it Out Together!

From bike lanes to park improvements to changing the look and feel of downtown, the City is up to a lot these days. To inform the decisions being made, we're hearing from you. 

A workshop and open house was held on Saturday, February 18 at the Royal BC Museum. There was great discussion on projects planned for 2017/2018, the roles of citizens and businesses in decision-making and the best ways to include the community in what's coming up. The documents below summarize some of this information:

Based on feedback from the workshop, a draft Public Engagement Roadmap is being developed. The roadmap will map out the level of engagement on upcoming City initiatives to make public involvement in city decision-making easy and effective. Projects thrive when the community helps shape them, but with the many demands on people's time and energy, being involved needs to be easy! The draft Roadmap will be ready early April, at which point a survey and next steps will be communicated.

The community roadmap is guided by the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) principles. The City of Victoria adopted IAP2 core values in 2011 and has been continually refining its engagement approach since, a commitment honoured in 2015 when it was awarded Canadian Organization of the Year.
