Get Involved

Want to talk about the future of Westminster with your friends and neighbors? Contact us at for questions or to request a "meeting in a box" that has an interactive exercise for you to host events and provide feedback. Materials also include instructions to help you get started and easy to use forms.

Westminster Forward continues to seeks input to help develop policies and actions to shape our future through this coordinated set of city plans. If you are unable to attend the the People, Places & Plans Open House events you may select to offer feedback on one or more of the following plans: Comprehensive Plan; Parks, Recreation & Libraries Plan; Sustainability Plan; Transportation & Mobility Plan; and Water Supply Plan through the below online survey. Your input will help establish priorities and actions for development of these plans.

The example below shows how the Westminster Forward plans might interface in one particular location.

Process Timeline_4Public outreach efforts (2019 Outreach Campaign Summary) will take into consideration the city's public engagement activities such as Water 2025, Drought Management Plan, Value of Water, Sign Code and the Harris Park Plan to minimize confusion and public fatigue and increase community awareness of how the plans inform/integrate with one another. These considerations may affect the overall plan schedules.

Westminster Forward provides opportunities to coordinate community engagement and plan content development for multiple citywide plans.  While each plan may be in a different phase than others, the project teams are continually coordinating to ensure the plans are working together to address the city's Vision, Strategic Plan, and other citywide goals.

With anticipated limits to in-person engagement due to COVID-19 protocols, Staff has identified online engagement avenues to supplement the two online activities in 2019 that elicited 358 and 598 responses respectively. Staff is aware of the need to provide additional opportunities to ensure community participation, therefore, in-person events will be planned for later in 2020, subject to COVID-19 protocols in place at the time. A report was provided to the Westminster City Council on June 1, 2020.
