Submitted by the City of Culver City
The City of Culver City recently began updating its General Plan. This is an exciting opportunity to develop a roadmap to make Culver City the best it can be for residents, workers, and visitors. From housing to parks, from our cultural vibrancy to our bustling economy, our goal is to make Culver City a place where everyone thrives. To achieve this, we know it takes broad and meaningful community engagement, so everyone contributes to shaping the future.
The City is continuing public engagement during the Safer at Home Public Health Orders through previously planned and new opportunities:
- A Culver City Storybank that features photos and postcards that residents submit describing their Culver City stories
- Educational videos on planning and existing conditions in our community
- Teleconference meetings and study sessions of the General Plan Advisory Committee
- A Tactical Urbanism1 demonstration project featuring a message board for the community to note ideas, to showcase how changes in our streets, parks and open space, or other public areas can transform our experiences, re-energize and make spaces welcoming
- and other digital engagement ideas
