2022 Engagement

Engagement Goals

In 2022, the City solicited public input into future land use scenarios for Hughes. The City held focus groups and asked for continued input on this site to supplement the feedback received from the community to date. This input was shared with City Council in the form of future land use scenarios that balance priorities and needs in early 2023.

What the City Heard

Here are the high level themes that the City heard during those engagement efforts, all of which will be considered as the City develops scenarios for potential use of the Hughes site:

  • Protect the views of the foothills for the site and surrounding neighborhood.
  • Create space that the community can use for recreation and enjoyment of natural space, with limited development.
  • Consider environmental protections and buffers for wildlife, water, and native plant species.
  • Maintain access to nearby natural areas, such as the Maxwell Natural Area.
  • Increase trails and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.

The City appreciates community members who provided valuable input on the process so far. The City is incorporating the feedback received through past engagement and surveys (e.g., the City's recent community survey, the 2021 Parks & Recreation Master Plan(External link), and outreach conducted during prior Hughes development efforts).
