What is Livable Centers?

All Livable Centers are unique, but are based on
similar concepts of development:
▪ Connecting residences, stores and office spaces through mixed-use developments
▪ Enhancing streetscapes, sidewalks and overall community aesthetics
▪ Improving access to transit and multiple transportation modes, including roadways, walking and biking
▪ Expanded housing and employment opportunities
▪ Creating a public engagement strategy that encourages stakeholder involvement in the formation of the plan

Public Engagement Activities

Staff Meetings

The Freese and Nichols Team will meet with City staff periodically throughout the project to discuss project progress, key action items and responsibilities, and project schedule. Standing conference calls can be used to provide project updates, present project materials, or have workshops and discussions.

Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) Meetings

The SAC is composed of various stakeholders and has the primary responsibility of guiding the activities of the study and providing input into the process. The Freese and Nichols team will meet with the SAC at five (5) times during the planning process to discuss key issues related to the development of the Livable Center Study.

Community Meetings

Community meetings provide the opportunity for community members to be involved in the plan development process. The Freese and Nichols team will facilitate up to four (4) public involvement events to gather input from the community and inform the community about the project. A minimum of two (2) meetings will be advertised as public meetings with a specific date and time. Up to two (2) additional events can be facilitated at different times during the process.

Public Hearings

Public hearings are official meetings that are publicly advertised and on the record. Two (2) public hearings will take place during the project. The first public hearing will take place in the middle of the process to provide an update to City council. The second public hearing will take place at the end of the project for City Council to officially adopt the Angleton Livable Center Study.

Outreach Tools

Project Website

A project website will be created to host information about the project in one place. The project website should include a brief project description, allow for presentations to be posted, provide a link to an online survey and provide a comment section for community feedback. Meeting notifications and other information can also be posted on the site as warranted. The project website can be hosted by the City or by the planning team.

Online Survey

An online survey is used to collect input from the community on needs, preferences and priorities, and other relevant topics. The survey will be administered via an online survey tool such as MetroQuest or Survey Monkey. The survey is a unique tool that can be used in addition to an in-person community meeting or can be used to gather input that would typically be gathered at an in-person community meeting.

Social Media

Social media can be used to inform the community about the project and promote event during the project process. Various social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and NextDoor can be used in concert to reach more people.
