The city of Roswell is launching Together Roswell, “a robust community-engagement effort to develop Roswell’s first-ever citywide strategic plan,” according to a June 3 announcement.

Together Roswell is seeking widespread community input throughout the summer months, beginning with public engagement workshops.

The goal of the Together Roswell effort, according to a new release, “is to develop a strategic plan for the city based on its residents’ vision and shared goals. Citizen involvement in the strategic plan is critical to developing a vision for the city’s future and a plan to make that vision a reality.”

The Together Roswell public engagement phase will kick off with a series of “Get Together Roswell” listening-and-learning sessions.

During these sessions, the City’s consultants, Planning NEXT, will give a brief presentation introducing the process, with the majority of the time dedicated to small group discussions and activities.

Register to attend one of the following sessions at TogetherRoswell.org.

The goal of these listening-and-learning sessions is to lay the foundation for receiving critical feedback from Roswell residents and business owners.

Childcare is available for most sessions. Parents will need to register their children before the event at TogetherRoswell.org.

Public input collected throughout the Together Roswell process will serve as the foundation for the strategic plan. Together Roswell is an opportunity for the entire city to pause, take stock and define what Roswell should be and how to get there.

“Planning processes like Together Roswell represent good stewardship. But for the city to know the community’s priorities, we must ask them,” City Administrator Gary Palmer said in a statement. “This plan will be driven by public engagement and supported by the conclusions drawn from these discussions. It’s critical that everyone get involved and help shape the future of Roswell.”
