|Plan Process Summary|
Undertaken over the course of a year, the citizen-driven process was managed by City of Amarillo Planning staff and consultant, Cassie Wright, of Urban Milestones. It included five public meetings, eight advisory committee meetings, a business owner survey, and 16 focus group meetings with other city departments and partner organizations. Over 300 people participated in the outreach efforts. Everyone is invited to continue their involvement as members in the new San Jacinto Neighborhood Association.
The City of Amarillo solicited applications for an advisory committee that served as the community’s stewards for the San Jacinto Neighborhood Plan process. The committee included stakeholders who represent a balanced mix of roles within the neighborhood and broader community, including: neighborhood residents, property owners, business owners, non-profit leaders, religious leaders, school representatives, historic preservation advocates/historians, advocates for people with disabilities and others. The committee met monthly throughout the plan process.
The City of Amarillo, with consultant Urban Milestones, developed a public engagement plan in order to provide a framework for how interested residents, property owners, business owners, and other stakeholders could participate in the process. It was designed to bring people together to problem-solve, deliberate, and cooperatively decide how to proceed with complex problems.
